abarlovento is on a distinguished road
Hello! in search of information.

Hi, my name is Cami and I am new to this forum.
I´m located in Long Island NY and trying to search for some information about cruising to the Caribbean and South America.

I have plans to leave NY by december and start to head south back home to Argentina on my Beneteau First 26 1986. I´m not an expert sailor and I had never cruise for more than 2 days but I´be been sailing since I am 14-15 years old. I know is not a big boat, but I will be always sailing close to shore and I have no rush at all to complete the trip.

My big concerns:

- is december a good time to leave? if not whats the best time of the year to head south?

- Is the boat to small for cruising?

- Do I need any special license or permit in order to leave the country with the boat and enter other countries?

- I´ve heard that from Trinidad/Venezuela going south there is huge an upwind zone all year round, does anyone know about this situation?
any period of the year that doesn´t happen?

Thanks guys.

December is cold, with short days, sometimes stormy. I would leave sooner. Your boat is small. I'm not familiar with her design, some small boats have circled the world. I've only cruised the coast of the U.S. Someone may advise you on going foreign.
