First post on in the forum. I am a novice
sailor. I have several hundred hours in houseboats, but not much to mention from a sailing perspective....however, it is a goal of mine to truly learn to sail. We (wife, daughter 12, daughter 9) have bit the bullet and chartered a boat out of ft lauderdale for spring break of 2013 and want to explore miami
and biscayne bay. I depart Sunday and have to return the boat on Friday noon. I am unfamiliar with the area but have been researching. I think we can make northern Miami
on day 1. Since I have two kids
and not sure that they are into the sailing thing, I think that we can make 20 miles a day under sail/power. That puts us a total of 60nm south of ft lauderdale. Any thoughts of places to see/do in that area? We are open to land/bay adventures
Although I have very limited experience, I am now booked with sail time to complete asa
101 and 103 in the next two months. From that point on, I plan on building my skills on the weekend....
Thanks for any feedback/advice
