Re: Cruisers: what kind of trips can be made by non-bluewater boats in a weather wind
More to do with the level of seamanship than the boat, after all Shane Acton went around in a 18ft bilge keeler and Webb Chiles made it most of the way round in an open 18 ft boat.
Bahamas should be within your reach further East will be a slog as you have surmised but doable.
