I think you should wait and do some longer passages with your boat and family to build experience and confidence. If there is a dilemma or a dramatic choice, it's probably best to wait until the dynamic changes. When the decision is no longer difficult, it's the right time to go. A bit like the difference between heading to somewhere or heading for somewhere. In my experience, the notion of a 'window of opportunity' is somewhat fluid when cruising. There will be no knashing of teeth if you wait - as long as you continue to keep your eyes on the prize - and doing longer passages in the interim will build your cruising capacity.
