Re: Caribbean advice

Again thank you all for your advice. Billyruffn, that was great of you for your detailed information. That was my plan to head for Panama as you advised. Looking at the Christmas winds over the last few days shows 30 plus knots with that high over the Great Lakes. I have no need to go to the ABC's.

As for the grand kids I'll make their mother come along she can make her husband take care of the cattle. That will take care of any airport potential problems.

Thanks

Cheers.

Re: Caribbean advice

We anchored in Fort de France at carnival time (which was amazing) in Martinique and drove to the windward side. If you have a shoal draft boat and are feeling brave there are some anchorages but its pretty hairy!

How come no-one mentions St Barths? We loved it. Not cheap i guess but for a visit for a couple of days it very cool.

Re: Caribbean advice

St. Thomas airport is small, your grandchildren cannot get lost or confused. It's also US so the immigration paperwork nonsense will not be an issue. You can then quickly hop to St. John or go east to the smaller BVIs such as Guana. White Bay is desolated. Your grandchildren can have an entire beach to snorkel, throw a frisbee or frolick in the water. We were just there for a few days. Two other boats at most for the entire time.
