If you intend to stay in the Caribbean I'd question the need for an Asymmetrical spinnaker. Up and down the eastern chain you're rarely going to have wide enough angles or little enough wind - at least not often enough to justify the cost and space it will all take.
Perhaps heading from Antigua/Barbuda towards the west it would be useful...
