annieo....last year, March, my husband and I chartered a Catamaran from TMM and sailed her south for 7 days. It was great! However, the charts available are NOT for navigational purposes so you need someone on the bow for the tricky spots and some of the islands are impossible with a setting sun or at twilight. Also, if you are doing overnights, make sure of double anchors! It's great sailing for cats but I wouldn't want to try it with a monohull; but, then, I'm not that experienced. Have fun.
