Re: Can I sail to the Bahamas with NO experience?

I don't know. I sailed down to Mexico by myself just after my 20'th birthday on a 28 foot sloop. I had lot's of training and sea time prior and I still am amazed when I think back at how little I knew. My nicro-press rig and leaking packing gland, I would'nt do it now not knowing what I did then. I'm glad I did'nt know then what I know now or I would'nt have done it. I guess if you wait till you are ready you'll never go.
