Your kids will have a blast. I don't think a flotilla is a bad idea for a first trip down. Navigation is generally not too tough down there, but a "guided tour" will give you the lay of the land...

Thought I would ad to this post rather than starting my own. We are going to be down there at the beginning of February on a boat with a 5'5" draft. I have made the sail to Anegada once with a...

Thanks for the reply. I figured I would keep the drop board in and keep the companionway hatch closed but wasn't sure if there were any other tricks. I think she'll be fine and understand the rules...
