Buddy boat to Bahamas

I am looking for an experienced Gulf Stream crosser to buddy boat with me for my first crossing. I am presently in North Palm Beach at the Old Port Cove Marina about 4 miles north of the Lake Worth inlet. My boat is an Island Packet 37. I have limited offshore experience and am waiting for mild conditions. My planned route is Lake Worth to West End, then Great Sale, Green Turtle, Marsh Harbor. Thank you for any and all replies.Bill Archbold

Do it by yourself. You will learn more that being led.

Re: Buddy boat to Bahamas

I can't quite understand the desire to sail in groups. If you are worried about sinking, take a life raft and an EPRIB. Other than that you just have folks to worry about in addition to yourself. The buddy boat is a false security that will in fact be distracting.
