I am looking for a recommendation for a Destination for a Bareboat charter with friends this winter. I am an RYA Offshore Yatch Master (1985) have chartered in the BVI, California,and Asia (years ago) and run a charter business on the Canadian North Shore of Lake Superior so I have the experience that way but I haven't done a lot of Chartering in different locations so don't know the areas (I worked off the coast of Africa in the 80's but don't think we will go there
) It will be my wife and I (lots of experience) and another couple with very limited experience. What we are looking for is somewhere that is inexpensive but warm, good sailing and where we can also do some diving. I was thinking about Florida as it is inexpencive to fly there and only a 35 hour drive if we decide to go that way. But wonder what the costs would be for everything else. Basically looking for a good value on sailing and diving.
