Bobcat--not sure. I think it was always Caravanseri, since I have known it.

When I had Reef Song I at that point had not considered what the issues. were. In fact I think most USA folks do not realize who little insurance they have against losing everything. I lost 300k out of pocket.

Thanks but way too many hoops to jump through to take a vacation. No direct from here to MIA that I am aware of. I was in at Delta for $414 but then it went up and even had I booked, the return is now an overnight. We do not have the luxury of multiple airlines and airports unless we make a 2 hour drive and then is it still basically the same airlines (AA/Delta). I thinkn the closest JB comes is Cleveland and that is 4 hours. Sadly, probably not in the cards this fall.

Sounds like a fun trip. On Guadeloupe make sure you get to Deshaies. Really lovely place with, when I was there, a great atmosphere. Setting for the vast majority of the BBC TV series 'Death in Paradise'. I went to Marie Galante once and didn't see a reason to go back. I may have missed something so if someone else says it's great then go for it.

Rita - we just put “Escape Artist” on the calendar for June 2021 — she is their FP Helia 44 owner’s version - 3 cabin/3 electric heads/GenAC

Looks like a gorgeous boat - a little more $$ than Stella...but lots of room and only 6 of us on board.

And that owner’s side.....yes please!

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.

Just noticed the latest JB flight time updates in my emails for those who might be looking for later dates up to mid June.

Yes Winterstale, we have been with BVIYC for at least that long too. And we also sailed Tootsie! I guess we have the same taste in sail boats. I sure wish that I had my next trip booked. Longing to get back. Best wishes for a great trip.

We use Paradise Rental Car (http://www.pdiseinc.com/). It’s $100 for a mini van. They’ll meet you at the airport and retrieve the vehicle from the marina when you are done with it.

...and attached to that report that was on tv was a statement from the TSA saying that they have absolutely no plans to train dogs to do that task. So....maybe in Europe

Is anyone doing the Key West thing in November? We chartered a Cat for first week in November out of KW. At the time we booked, it was looking like U.S. based was a lot more likely to happen. It still looks like we made the right choice....at least for November.

This is copy/paste from a tripadvisor traveler to STT 9/23

Traveled on Sept. 23rd (2 friends and I) with negative rapid COVID done at around 7pm the day before.

We didn’t submit documents in time for TravelPortal, so we printed them and brought negative COVID test print out.

There were two lines are the airport. One if you had the correct negative test where they took your temperature; the other for no test which was much longer. I’m not sure what happened with the other lane—some could’ve been tested there, but there were hundreds in the other line. Either they were all tested or some of them were and the rest told to quarantine somewhere ....

So much anxiety, but as long as you have your correct documents and don’t have fever, it’s not a long process at all.

Fred - you got it right off the bat, I planned this picture as a "teaser" to get people on the wrong trail and then planned that the next picture of that green freighter, the "Rickmer Rickmers", would give it away. It is all yours!

It sounds like you might have misunderstood the CYOA policy and Covid cancelation offer. While the deposit might not be refundable, it can be applied to a future charter. We found CYOA to be immediately responsive and very accommodating in working through the two charters we had booked with them. On one, since we were just a month and a half from the charter start, they held our deposit and we applied it to a future charter (now already taken) and on the second charter we paid a nominal fee to reschedule since we were more than 90 days from our charter start. I found Sarah super helpful and clear on what our options were. You might want to call Sarah and ask for clarification.
