I am a beginner with a dream. That dream is to spend some months sailing a small boat through the Bahamas on a budget. I am currently learning more about sailing in England and plan to retire in 5 years with the knowledge to sail solo in the Bahamas. I am interested in any information about costs, what a boat costs(under 30 ft) bought in Florida and any recommended manufactures, how long one can stay in the islands and any other information I could use or sources of information? Your replies would help me make my dream a reality.
