4 hours ago As Always...CHECK Your Flights..More Delta Changes [by ruralcarrier]
Having had Delta cancel our original Nov. flights and since trying to find other days/options that would work, they are now different again. Delta continues to adjust, consolidate, eliminate and otherwise change in many ways the options for many to get to the island. It is almost a certain NO-GO for us now as I am not willing to overnight on either leg of the trip or risk a less than 1 hour connection time. As of a few days ago, there were some options on Delta that would have possibly worked had we changed our dates by a few days and paid more $$ but those are not even available now with the latest changes.

More moves that will have a negative impact on the economy of the island.

Good luck to anyone with flights booked.

13 hours ago Suggestions for Trip Itinerary – Antigua to Martinique (One Way) [by Bow]
I am planning on chartering a 50 ft monohull to sail from Antigua to Martinique (One Way) for March either 2021 or 2022. I plan on taking about 12 days for the sail.

I am considering stopping at Montserrat, Guadeloupe & The Saintes & Marie-Galante, Dominica and Martinique.

I am wide open as to suggestions, including leaving entire islands off the itinerary, best places to stop, off the beaten path anchorages, etc.
Interested in hearing the good and the bad including any safety concerns.

Thanks in advance.

09/26/2020 01:29 PM USVI in Nov [by ligot]
So we're moving Tortuga to USVI again in Nov because we've had this trip planned since Jan and couldn't move the dates. It will be similar to the one we did in Aug in that we'll be picking up additional crew 2 days in. The difference is we'll be there longer, 12 days this time so we can be a little more flexible.

What I'm wondering this time:
Someone earlier mentioned a car/van day rental when we arrive. What was the grocery stop that was suggested and who was the rental company? I'm concerned about a vehicle holding 6 passengers, luggage and then a weeks worth of provisions.

Are there mooring balls in Frenchtown for a short stop? I was toying with picking up crew there and spending the night off of Water Island? If we do that, is there a market nearby for fill in provisioning or ice?

From a sailing point of view, are there stops on St Thomas we should make of point of seeing? Last time we pretty much spent every night off of St John. I don't believe any of the crew is really interested in Charlotte Amalie shopping.

Last trip we did every night dinner aboard. We'd consider a couple land based dinners if the restaurant had outdoor seating. Nothing fancy just decent view, food and drinks to get off the boat. Any suggestions?

Last time to the Annaberg ruins and the petroglyphs. Any other, light to moderate hikes anyone really loved?

Thanks for reading thru this and of course thanks for any guidance.

Dave
