Re: Crew Wanted-sailing from Puerto Rico to Galveston in May
From Puerto Rico why would you not sail along the south coast of DR and thence to Jamaica, thence through the Caymens to Isla and then a reach up to Galveston, essentially down wind or a reach and down current the entire way? Why ever would you divert to the Caicos? Further, what is your and your pal's experience off shore and how well is your yacht prepared for such a passage?
