Re: sailing the Bahamas
Honestly I don't know why people make a deal out of the gulf stream. It is nothing t worry about unless the weather is strong, particularly from the north. Remember it is only a long day sail to Bahama and weather forecasts are pretty reliable for 48 hours. It is not even a "passage" so if your boat is sound, and you know how to sail there is no issue
Many of the boats cruising the Bahamas are small. In fact the bit larger boats often get to Georgetown and never lift their anchor from Dec to April, they make a big deal out of winds over 15kts. They are really just folks living in floating trailers at the Georgetown trailer park while folks like yourself on a 27 footer are cruising the beautiful far islands!
