Sailing From NYC to the Dominican Republic

Hello Everyone,

I want to buy a sail boat. I want to travel to the Dominican Republic. I have been told that it takes around 7 days to get there. im looking for a month vacation. spending 14 days traveling, round trip and the other 15,16 days enjoying the island. I will be traveling alone or with another person max. I want to take some sailing classes before I head out. I need help with information on the sail boat. can anyone please tell me if I can make it comfortable to the Dominican Republic with a 30ft? I was reading an article and the person said that he experienced 40ft high waves going to the Caribbeans. is this legit? I got a little worried after reading that I may experience waves bigger then the sail boat i'm trying to buy. I'm not trying to spend more than 40k on the sail boat. background: i'm a newbie, I have never sailed before, this will be my first adventure in the ocean.

thank you for your help.

Hate to rain on your parade. This is a 10 to 12 day trip for a 30 ft boat with a very experienced crew with a perfect weather window & conditions. It's not a trip for a newbee.

But donít let that rain and truth stop you from sailing!!! Start smaller and simpler and build to the trip to the DR.
