How much time do you have? If you have ten days you can get in a lot of sailing. If you want to miss Bimini, and go straight to Nassau. You can be in the Exumas in less than 2 days, unless an easterly is blowing snot against you.

This gives you 6 days of day sail, and a new anchorages with fantastic snorkeling. The it's across the bank, and into the tongue of the ocean. Less than days you will be back in Lauderdale with a 600 miles under the keels.

Many would just do the Abacos. I have only approached the Abacos from the east both times, and I am honestly not that familiar. cam is the man to ask. His knowledge is extreme there.........i2f

Nassau is a party town on the front side of it. Just south of Bimini is an old wreck that's a great dive. In April I forget what kind, but sharks come in, and give birth. Couple miles more south is Honeymoon harbor. I always anchor east of the harbor, because it can get crowded. Lots of rays come in, and you can walk through them. A couple of good reefs on the west side of the harbor entrance too.

It's a nice distance sail to Chub across the banks From Bimini, and the dominate wind is on a beam from Bimini. Another 40 miles, or so is Nassau. A trip to the Aquarium at Paradise Island is worth 3-4 hours. There are snorkel spots just on the east channel where they dump tourist from large day cats.

Have a great time no matter where you go. It is not even the tip of the iceberg for the Bahamas. It will take a lifetime to see it all, and it's all beautiful.......i2f

Your date changes everything. Sometimes people wait several weeks to cross 42 miles. Maybe Florida Yacht Charter out of Miami would be better? They use to have one way to, and from Key West. That's a nice sail with tons of stuff to do. They also have cats in Abaco. Out of Miami Biscayne Bay is a great sail, and anchorages everywhere all the way through the Keys......i2f

If you can't cross. Sail down to Biscayne, and do some of the Keys. It beats sitting in Lauderdale waiting. Have fun, and WELCOME to the darkside of multis.:laugher :eek: ;) .......i2f

She is a Simpson 13.7 with a wee bit added in the stern. She is cold molded, built in Berlin did the truck on the Autobahn. Her layout is unique that's for sure. The German engineer who built her built her for 2. I have a ton of interior pics at multihulls4us.com My pride, and joy is the huge workshop, and 2 large benches.The only thing I would do different is add 10 more feet of length, and make a true living room with well reclined couches.....i2f
