Re: Bad things that happen at sea.
Don't have ant stats, but the number of boats lost in these areas would be very small. Probably not weather related unless you are talking about something like Hurricane Sandy which destroyed many boats where they were moored.
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.
