I want to expand my cruising experience. I really don't have any interest in voyaging.

Does that make sense?
It makes sense ... if it makes sense to you.

Back to Grenada in early December. Not sure I will remember how to sail. Will spend the winter and early spring in the Caribbean and then head to Bermuda and the northeast US. Still trying to decide if we will bring the boat to Canada, either in 2015 or 2016.
