The sailing part is not the hard part.
The hard part is fixing something broken at 3:00 am when you're sick, wet, cold, exhausted, scared to death, wish you were dead, and your flashlight is dead, you don't have the right part and you dropped the necessary tool overboard. Oh, and you're almost out of water and the radio is dead, and you're drifting towards the rocks too. And you haven't slept well for a couple days.
That kind of reality is definitely at odds with the sunshine, palm trees, and umbrella drinks on a white sand beach vision.
You might want to prepare well.
