South Africa to Caribbean

My wife and I are in South Africa and will be sailing from Cape Town to the Caribbean in early January on our Bristol 45.5. We had crew arranged for this passage but she had to pull out due to an injured back. The trip would be something like 40 days of sailing (5400 miles) plus stops at St Helena, Ascension, and in northern Brazil.

Depending on the time you have available, you could leave the boat in Brazil or Barbados/Grenada. You would be responsible for your travel costs and for getting a visa for Brazil. If things sound good so far, we can talk about things like references and questions.

You can learn more about us and the boat at onAinia.blogspot.com.

Finished the circumnavigation in early February in Grenada. Have to work on a book project for the next several months so the boat will be waiting for next year.
