Re: Crew available, Virgin Islands southwards, towards Martinique.

See you on Martinique! I'm staying until end of March. Assuming I find a way back :-) Will be there next winter too. People on Martinique are actually quite happy about people from Quebec. They have a reputation as less arrogant than the French from Europe. Maybe there is also some feeling of insular solidarity. Both Quebec and Martinique are dreadfully far away from the center of the world (Paris), and tend to feel lost in these distant dark seas of anglophones ... Actually, they are quite friendly and welcoming, as long as you speak some sort of French. Even my Danish version is accepted as a nice try.
