Planning to sail from Miami to Bimini

I'm planning to leave this coming Saturday night from Miami to Bimini and being back Monday night on a 37'. It's my first time from Miami to Bimini.
Condition look good for Saturday night, more challenging for Monday.
Should be concern for Monday night?
I appreciate any suggestion

Re: Planning to sail from Miami to Bimini

Not a very long weather window tomorrow evening...how stout a 37' boat do you have and how is your engine...maybe better to just motor or motorsail the while way there. Do you have a good working inboard engine? Also, remember Bahamas is now $300 over 30 foot boat...ugh

Re: Planning to sail from Miami to Bimini

I just checked the weather. If this is your first time, you would not want to cross. Wait for another week.

Good luck.

Rain early, then northerlies from Sun to Mon. It's a no brainer to delay.

Did this in '96:

Never on a northerner and Cat Cay may be an easier choice. Had a friend with a 40 footer. Left on a north wind. His wife quite sailing after that (and so did he!).
