Boat in Jolly Harbour, Antigua and leaving for Gibraltar early May, anyone available for crewing?
Comment by nekkidsailin on March 8, 2010 at 5:47pm
either selling the boat at the end of the month or headed south/windward in mid-april. If the latter, looking for some companions for the trip....

Currently in CHS, SC (since 2006), hoping to head to the windward caribbean this spring - anyone else headed that direction then? Would love to hook up for a flotilla....

WOW! Caribbean! Way beyond my expectations. Have now been here after the ARC arrival in december and have been thoroughly enjoying it. Went south as far as Grenada and now am proceeding north, currenty in Dominica. Have added my photos on the web site if anyone wants to get a taste of the Caribbean:

Keep your ears open for some friends of ours. Namely Karen and Jerry on PERSPHONE (long time cruisers and a wealth of information if it is needed) and Eric and Jackie on COMPASS ROSE (brand R new cruisers).

Tell 'em we said, "Hi".

Well, I haven't contributed to this in quite a while. We are currently in St. Thomas USVI having sailed back up from Grenada in December and January. Spent Thanksgiving at Mayreau, beautiful, spent Christmas in Antigua, very historic and a great place to be for the holidays. Explored St. Croix on the way to St. Thomas, a beautiful island with very nice people and low fuel prices. Continue to have a great time exploring the Caribbean. More places left to visit. Will explore the Spanish Virgins probably in April.

We spent over 2 years in the Caribbean. (just got back) Leewards, Windwards, Trinidad, Venezuela, Bonaire, Curacao, and the western Caribbean. Feel free to ask any questions.

thankyou for the input......
Comment by Harvey Levesque on November 30, 2009 at 3:07pm
Key West to Bimini or Gun key, to Nassau, down the Exumas, to Provo (Turks & Caicos), to Luperon or Samana in Dominican Republic, over to Mayaguez or Boqueron in Puerto Rico, along south coast to Virgins. Stop in and visit when you get to Salinas PR or nearby. I've sailed this route a couple times and with good weather sense it's not bad at all. Email me and I can give you more complete and precise info.

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
