Default Planning for the big adventure!

Hiya, we are an English family planning a sabbatical in 2016 to cruise around the Caribbean for about 8 months from October.
After some research We've bought what will be an ex charter yacht to pick up from St Martin in October 2016. We are both sailors with quite a few short trips under our belts but our kids are currently 3 & 5, so the plan for the next 4 years is to introduce them slowly and make it fun! So we are mixing fair weather day trips in the Solent with a week in the Med a couple of times a year as we can afford it.
The big project now is to plan the trip, everything from safety, packing , route, visas, weather, power, communications, water, school work, first aid courses etc so we would be keen to hear from anyone out in the Caribbean, best places to go, best routes (starting at St Martin) top tips and just link up with anyone planning or having done something similar.
Xx
