Re: Caribbean, What works and doesn't
I was just down there for two weeks. Full hoist every day. Most we saw was 16kts. It was much less than I'm accustom to over the winter, but not unheard of. Virtually no one sails every day, so all of our experiences are in fairly limited windows. Overall change like this needs a much bigger statistical look.
I just went to weather underground to see if I could get historical data at STT. They have it, but I haven't figured out how to get multiple years of it at once.
March has seen daily max wind range from 16 to 22 kts at the STT airport. Min daily from 0 to 8 kts.
I looked at January too. Max daily was between 14 and 24 kts. Min daily ranged from 0-7.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
