Re: Can you charter one way ?

Think about this, if you don't have a boat, but do have lots of money, (a charter of that length is going to cost), think about being paying crew on a boat that is going there anyway.

Advantages, MUCH cheaper, the boat is maintained by owner, no worries about liability, etc..., you get to learn firsthand under the owner of the boat, he has a vested interest in insuring his boat is capable, and well maintained, fly back with no obligation.

I don't see any downsides. There are plenty of cruisers here that need crew, good chance you will find one in crew wanted.

Just curious, how can you miss Bermuda in these days of GPS??????
We never missed it with celestial back when. It's the only thing out there for quite a few miles; if nothing else, turn on an AM/FM radio & follow the signal.
And it is a great stop, if horrifically expensive. Friendly and interesting island. $8.50 per gallon for diesel last time I was there (Oct 2011), but a great stop, none the less! Dockage was cheap though; $60.00 a nite (53' boat) near the customs dock.

I'm afraid I let humor obscure clarity.

When heading to the Caribbean I leave Norfolk on 135T (or as close as I can) until I get to somewhere around 60W to 70W (depending on where I'm going) and turn to 180T until I get where I'm heading. If you look at the track it appears initially as if I'm aiming at Bermuda and then turn. I call that "aim for Bermuda and miss"

I do enjoy Bermuda when we stop there. As you say it is both lovely and expensive.

sail fast and eat well, dave
