Re: Medical Insurance
Only a few places seem to require medical insurance. Chagos comes to mind. The requirement really is for evacuation insurance. I think Ascension has something similar but you can buy it locally by the day. I agree about having insurance for the US. Medical costs there are beyond belief.
Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Relatively few stops along the way from Grenada. Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Martin (must have something to do with the French food), then Bermuda, New England and up the Hudson/Erie Canal. We were going to go via Newfoundland and Labrador but June remembered that one of the kids is getting married this summer - details, details!
