Re: Rallies Gone Wrong

I think it is important to point out that not all rallies are the same or even similar. The 1500 and SD point this out as do events like Sail Indonesia which seems to be focussed on dealing with the country's incredible bureaucracy. The Pacific Puddle Jumpers is nominally a rally but you can leave from anywhere on the Pacific coast of the Americas (we went from Ecuador) whenever you want so long as you reach French Polynesia within a window of a few months.

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!
