Looks like a great trip. I grew up on the "C" island. Don't forget to to check out Bonaire: flamingos, salt hills, conch hills. From Bonaire to Curacao you can overnight on Klein Curacao. The eastern tip of curaçao can be treacherous so I recommend staying well off it...thus an overnight stop in Klein curaçao and then easy sailing along the southern curaçao coast. Some good scuba diving there...a rare dive site. Once in curaçao, there's lots to do. In Spanish bay, good marinas and anchorage, but the entrance to the bay is tight. High on the list you should snorkel "mushroom forest" on the west end (south side). Cristoffel park is good fir hiking the highest hill. Punda, Otrabanda, the forts and floating market are good to check out. Then Aruba...just sand baby and more sand...plus all sorts of American amenities.

Re: Grenada-Colombia Early July, 2011

Is this a paid position? I have experience. Logged 4000 miles last summer from Hurghada, Egypt to Cochin India via the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden (Pirate Alley) and Indian Ocean. Happy to give more details after initial contact is made. Thanks for your time!

Hi Nathan,
No, this is not a paid position. We have been sailing arround the Leeward and Windward islands for the past 6 months. We jus tthought it could be handy to have someone to help with a watch.
Cheers,
Glen

Re: Grenada-Colombia Early July, 2011

Hi folks,
Sorry I missed the last replies. We are currently in Curacao and wanting to continue on to Aruba and then Santa Marta where we will hold up for a month or more. Not sure if you are around and interested in this passage Andre, Paul or Chelsea?
