Hello to all BVI mates. We are now on our way down to -10F with wind chills near -60f predicted. My mind is on the lower latitudes! I was wondering if anyone has done the trip around Abacos as a change from the BVI? We have kids so safety is important, how is the sailing, ec
Thx, IS

We chartered in Abacos back in '03, had a blast, did a timeshare trade for a villa at Atlantis before getting aboard a Moorings 4200 Cat.

Pay close attention at the chart briefing, a family had just brought back to base that got their Moorings cat totally high and dry and had to be rescued.

We went late June and the winds were really light but got some good sailing in.

Very peaceful but almost a little spooky when you don't see another boat for a couple of days, very secluded anchorages.

Very different than BVI's but in a cool way.

Hey, IceSailor. We chartered in the BVIs twice in 2013/2014 and are planning for an Abaco charter in just two months (March)! We're working through Cruise Abaco to charter a Lipari 41. By a crazy bit of coincidence, I know two people that own different boats also in the Cruise Abaco fleet and they have been very complimentary of the owners, Mark and Patti. This will be our first trip to the area, but let me know if you have any questions. I can at least provide a full report afterwards. My wife and I are taking my parents, our kids (8 & 11) and nice and nephew (12 & 14). So please keep us in your prayers. :)
