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

Well...dispite your name is not Noah and you don't yet have an Arc, I suggest you spend a lot of time on the water once you find an acceptible vessel and learn the skills necessary to get from one point to another. Then take courses or learn on your own, how to navigate on paper and then invest in a dependable chartplotter. Learn as much as you can about the conditions of the Gulf Stream during the seasons in order to choose a "Best Window" during the "Best Season" to make the trip. Also study the country and their requirements for entry and their customs regulations.You indeed have a lot to learn but, what you are dreaming is doable, only after you and your first mate have put in some serious time learning the ropes and planning your adventure.Good Luck with your Dream!!!
