Re: Texas to Mex. Riviera, to Cayamans

I sail around that area a lot . I suggest you get that " blue Blble" book, the crusing guide to Mexico and Belize's caribbean coast by Freya ,I think. It has a picture of the Blue hole on the cover. Isla is great, Cozumel not so much. great protected anchorage in Isla and easy to clear in and out. It's hard to sail to the caymans from there because it's up wind all all the way. Unless you gunk hole up the south side of Cuba 'till you're due north of the Caymans. They are expensive and not great for cruising due to lack of harbours and such. the outer islands of Belize, the atols, turneffe reef are awesome. Just my 2 cents worth. I single hand a little 28 foot sloop with no engine around the western carib. a lot. your little Columbia is plenty boat.
