Re: helping about caribbiean seiling

Welcome aboard! It's good to hear that you will be pursuing your dream. That's wonderful.

Based on the limited information I have about your past experience with boats, I'd suggest that you get a comfortable boat that is good for island hopping but also can handle heavy seas. If you like monohulls then Beneteau makes a comfortable and affordable model, 393 Cyclades (I admit, I may be partial to Beneteau since that's what we have). If you have a little more money to play with I'd suggest something with a smaller draft so you can get closer to the islands.

The summer is hurricane season in the Caribbean so most people like to sail the Caribbean in the winter. Also, insurance may not cover your boat in the summer in the Caribbean so be sure to check on that.

For navigation we use Navionics. We have the app on our iPad, tablet, phones and we have chips in the Chartplotter unit.
We like Navionics because you can make your own real-time map using SonarChart Live. More info here: SonarChart Live | Navionics
Screenshots of before and after SonarChart Live to create even more detailed charts below (the thick black lines are contour lines that show extreme detail. when you scroll in you get contour lines every foot!):

For electricity we use a wind generator (The Caribbean is known for their Christmas winds in the winter which are perfect for a wind generator). We used a KISS generator. Check them out here: KISS High Ouput wind generator | svHotWire

Re: helping about caribbiean seiling


You can look up the list of Caribbean countries and read into their formalities to see how difficult or easy it will be for you to arrive and stay. Some countries are relaxed and some are rather tight. Go to the relaxed countries ... ;-)

Sailing in the Caribbean is pretty awesome - good wind, plenty of sun, warm water to swim; and if you do not like one place, the next one will offer different views, people and food. Enjoy.
