Re: Can I sail to the Bahamas with NO experience?
It ain't rocket science ... look at all the idiots who do it.
I've told this story before but I think its worth repeating. I surveyed a Catalina 47 in 2004 for a fella who had never sailed before. He bought the boat, spent two weeks loading it up then left the dock (singlehanded).
18 months later I got a email from him in having a great time in Trinidad. A couple of years later he came back to Toronto, bought a trawler and headed off for the loop.
He were'nt no rocket scientist but his momma didn't raise no dummies either.
A little knowledge, a little common sense and a spirit of adventure will take you a long way.
