Upcoming SVI Charter
      #1747562 - 09/25/17 10:33 PM (24.216.170.240)

Heading down to PR Oct 18-Nov 4 for 2 one week charters with 2 different crews,Dream Yachts says we are still a go. Does anyone have first hand knowledge of how Culebra and Vieques
are post Maria?

Here's post-Maria satellite imagery https://storms.ngs.noaa.gov/storms/maria/index.html#15/18.2832/-65.6322

Looks like many buildings along the Esperanza waterfront at Vieques lost their roofs. North shore appears to have fared better.

Culebra appears to be in pretty good shape.

Puerto del Rey marina in Puerto Rico looks to be in surprisingly good shape compared to the images of post-Irma yacht destruction from BVI.

Miraculously, the entire Sail Caribe fleet (based at Puerto del Rey) survived intact, and they will be starting their charter season in October as planned. Obviously, the places to sail will be limited, but it's an opportunity to contribute to the local economy.

We in same boat as you so to speak. Our charter was going to start about a week after yours. We feel so bad for all the people living down in the islands at this time.

Good morning, we have a house in Vieques rented November 15-20. The owner of the house ( he lives in the states ), has spoken to the caretaker who said " ferries resumed. roads open, food in stores, gas in stations, cell service spotty, electricity may take months to restore" . I hope this helps some.

Stay on top of your flights. I don't believe the airports will be fully operational by then.

SJU is open now, no a/c in the terminals yet, as far as I can tell, but it is open. There are several flights listed from SJU to Miami today, including one in the air right now. Several cancelled, but some still going.
