Re: Caribbean Planning

In the fall rallies to the Caribbean there are usually a handful of skippers at the arrival point in the BVIs looking for crew to accompany them to the windwards. Most of the offshore crew returns home as soon as possible so there are usually opportunities to hop on with a skipper who wants to make it to a certain island in time to spend Christmas there and/or to meet up with a spouse. Of course, once you get to the windwards your luck will probably run out as far as finding other boats willing to have you as crew - at least until they are ready to head back north in the spring.
