JRP has good advice, as usual... take lessons, gain experience, learn... What many neophytes fail to realize is that even the BVIs are over 1000nm ESE of Miami - that's a thousand miles upwind in the open ocean... more "over" to the Caribbean than "down" from the ICW.

Getting there is a tougher assignment than island-hopping once you're there.
