I have a Hobie 18 sx and i was wondering how long it would take to sail from the coast of Miami to the island of Nassau? From what i understand Nassau isnt that far away. I know its a random question.

A Random Question Indeed :

The Answer = IT DEPENDS ! The distance From Miami FL to the capital Nassau on New Providence Island is 150 nautical miles on a bearing of 105.63 degrees true.

So for arguments sake you have a broad reach and you are averaging 15 knots speed over the ground. If you leave Miami at 7am you will be on the beach of New Providence Island at 5pm.

If the wind is only 5 knots and its on the nose - it will take much longer.
