AM I READY?

I am looking for advice on whether I am ready to charter a 36 boat to BVI for one week. Submitted a sailing resume to the Moorings and they say I am qualified to sail anywhere in the world up to 45 ft boat. I have taken a learn to sail, advanced sail, coastal passage making and coastal navigation course all at a very excellent certified sailing school. Have sailed for 2 seasons (in the northeast, short season) and have skippered J-24 many times. Oh and the coastal passage making course was in the caribbean. Despite all, I am not 100% confident because I have never skippered anything outside of my usual sailing area. I don''t know how else to learn except to go and give it my best try. I''ll be taking my spouse and 2 children (7 & 9) and don''t want it to be a bad experience for them. I know no one can answer this except myself but I am wondering how to take the plunge!
