Hi All!
My name is Dawane Harris. I am excited about the fact that my wife, daughter and I have have decided to take 3 months next winter and sail from New York to the Caribbean. I am new to the sailing community but not to boating. If anyone out there has any suggestions on how to prepare for this journey, please let me know! I'm glad to be a part.....

Welcome, you sure came to the right place for help and advice, explore the forums, find threads that relate to you, and just ask...
I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure...

Re: Hello !


I think 3 months will be a real rush job, if possible at all. I would set my sights on the EXUMAS, or Abacos. Much more time to enjoy, and relax instead of a delivery........i2f

SAILING is not always a slick magazine cover!
BORROWED..No single one of is as smart as all of us!
