The owner of my marina took a 24 crescent over there and hit a reef coming in to port at night and sunk it. They salvaged it repaired the boat and finished their vacation minus clothes and food. A true adventure.
The reefs are easy to see. You learn to read the water color quickly. Moral to your story? dont sail at night! With that little boat you can tuck in almost anywhere so no big need to sail at night.
The gulf stream i sthe potential challenge. Wait for the wind to go south of NE and go.

Re: I Am Heading To The Bahamas

When are you leaving, I would be interested in going, I have limited experienced as I am landlocked in Ia. I sail a mac 26x. I do not have any navigation experience, but have lots of sailing experience on boats upto 30' on freshwater lakes.
