Cruising Sabbatical? New to Forum and Introducing Myself

Newly registered with SailNet and saying hi. After day sailing small boats periodically for years, my wife and I recently enjoyed a great week in St. Vincent and the Grenadines at Barefoot Charter's ASA sailing school. Thinking of ways to spend a cruising sabbatical with our two children for a month to a year. Either the Caribbean or Spain. Wonder if anyone knows any leads about where to connect with cruisers who might want to take a winter (or a year) off to exchange homes. Our quiet retreat with a beautiful view of the bustling, artsy, outdoorsy town of Nelson, BC www.discovernelson.com for someone's mono or cat. We're only a 15 minute drive from some of the greatest, most consistent and light powder on earth Ski British Columbia's Whitewater Winter Resort. Oh yeah, Nelson's situated on an 80 km lake that is great for sailing. Any thoughts, suggestions, etc. would be welcome. Cheers, Todd
