Frisky! We arrive on Jan 10 and are hoping for moderate <20kt winds and swell out of the east. We may end up with 25kt winds out of the east and a north swell.

Cheers, RickG

On island 1/13 but don't start charter until the 18th. Last time, at the same time of the year, we had constant 6-9ft swells and 25 knts of wind. I can't complain 18 inches of snow the last 3 days and temp is 21 degrees. We are on Azzurra and I am hoping she handles winds and swells.

Same here. Arrive on the 10th and depart the 24th. I was hoping for fair winds and non-north swells myself. Oh well, when life gives you limes, break out the blender and make a margarita! <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/Grin.gif" alt="" />

Me too. On the 9th for an overnight out of PR and then SVI through ST. Thomas and St. John. Well that's the plan anyway. If the wind and waves don't moderate we may need to scrap the longer passages and just hunker down instead.

Its all good.

No worry the the Beneteaus and Jeneaus can handle these seas and get you to an anchorage much quicker for a few sundowners an hour or two before the Island Packets. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/toast.gif" alt="" />

Are you saying those "coral crushers" are a bit on the slow side? :):):)
