The question shows you're not ready yet. Start taking short overnight trips to nearby anchorages
, then slowly build up to at least a 4 or 5 day offshore
trip where you're out of sight of land. Go sailing when the weather
is rough. Learn how to reef, heave to, and other heavy weather
. Climb the mast
to everything up top. Wear sunscreen. Anchor
a hundred times, all over. When you and the boat are ready, you'll know.
