i just recently bought a Spirit 23 and have been sailing the lake here close to home. at some point id like to sail from Galveston to Corpus Christi, as easily as possible making as many stops as necessary for a first time ocean sailing trip. id like to know if my Spirit 23 is capable of such a voyage and approx. how long it would take and just how close to land can one stay and be efficient still?
this is my first ever boat and i know i have a lot of learning yet to do but i want to know if in time this is feasible as a first time ocean voyage?

any help is greatly appreciated.
THANKs

Wow. I did just miss that. But that sounds like a great time and way to see and experience the gulf with some experienced sailors Thanks. I'll keep an eye on this. How do you feel about sailing in the Galveston area? As day sailing goes ?

Awesome. I'll look all these up and see what looks best for me. I live in Kansas but originally from Corpus Christi which is in part why id like to sail there for my first ocean voyage. Thanks again for the links.
