Hi everybody, I'm organising a trip on a sail boat with few friends and I was wondering if anybody have experienced to cross the Mediterranean Sea from Greece/Italy/Croatia or so.... to Africa and back, how long it might take? And any other useful tips are welcomed..

Thank you all, the idea/challenge was to cross the Mediterranean Sea, and therefore we are free to choose the best starting point from Europe to get to N.Africa and back.
Also is there any particular seasons to avoid?(weather etc...)
Yes, avoid cold weather, winter, storms, machine guns, illegal immigrants.

There are no safe countries in North Africa. Tunisia last night had an ISIS attack.
