and i have a three month cruise
planned from 2/15 until may 15. We planned on having our boat ( fountaine pajot
mahi) transported from Tallahassee, Fl to fajardo puerto rico
by a captain
and then we would begin our trip there.
From there we planned on cruising puerto rico
us and bvis for two months and then spend last month traveling back home or at least as far as bahamas
. Heres the trouble part the captain
picked up the boat 10 days ago and is now in George town, bahamas
but the captain we hired says he doesn't have a weather
window to move on and wants us to fly him home until weather
conditions look more favorable.
This puts serious change to our plans as its unlikely if we wait to have boat in puerto rico before we arrive. So should we hire a different captain. Should we start our trip where we planned on ending it and work our own way down to puerto rico which i have some reservations since this was the part of the trip we felt uncomfortable doing as we are hesitant to make crossing to dominican republic
and mona passage
to puerto rico on our own in february.
We have done a decent amount of coastal cruising but have never made a crossing like this most we have done was a 24 hour crossing from st. Petersburg florida
to panhandle of florida
with a captain on our boat. So any advice would be greatly appreciated as this may be the last time we could make such a trip with our kids
being at perfect age.
