Hello from Miami!

Hi, my name is Dominic and I'm a 28 year old from the UK. I'm currently cycling around the US and have found my way to Miami. I've got a couple of months free and am hoping to find a way to get across to the Bahamas and Caribbean even though I have no sailing experience.

Unfortunately I don't own one of those! The bags on my bike tend to do a great job of acting like a sail whenever the wind starts up though.
