You say that so easily. There's nothing wrong with taking risk. Except you will most likely be pushing the easy button when the poo hits the fan. Only because you don't have the skill yet. You may get lucky, and make it home unscathed, but the odds are against it. It happens all too often.

Possibly you should take some lessons. Join the boat, and enjoy southern Florida for what it has to offer, and that is plenty. Get some miles under your keel, and then venture off. The Bahamas are a short distance, and an easy sail. Not to mention beautiful. TOO many people underestimate the Great Lakes. They can be much more wicked than an open ocean. BEST WISHES in your adventure. There is risk, and then there is calculated risk. Which one will you be taking?. I type this out of concern, and not to rain on your parade.......i2f

20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves
