I am a relatively new member
to this web site and must say that the amount of helpful information has been fantastic.
Although I have sailed for 40+ years to include multiple world and national championships in various one designs and have participated in numerous ocean races as well as living and cruising the Caribbean
on many occasions I still feel a novice
when I read the articles from some of your contributors.
Since I am relatively new to catamarans I have particularly enjoyed the debate on heavy weather
tactics and handling for these vessels. I only wish I had discovered your web site years ago.
My life is still dictated by my work and home obligations here on the east coast
so I am a part time cruiser and now keep my cat in St. Lucia. I sail 2 weeks out of every month (racking up the frequent flier miles) during the winter season and plan to spend some time in Grenada
over the next few months and would like to know from any of your readers where if any are the best boat yards in the ABC's to have a boat hauled for hurricane
season. My plans are to visit some of the Islands off Venezuela
and continue on to Honduras
next season then to the Caymans and eventually to Cuba
. Unfortunately I sail only for two weeks at a time and keep the boat on the hard
for the summer months. Embarrassing I know but that is my life for now so I accept my fate and dream of the day when I will not have to board an airplane when I am just starting to relax. Suggestions on facilities in the ABC's will be truly appreciated.
