Hi There... IMHO...
We did that trip recently and are currently in the San Blas Islands. You can see our route
on our web page The adventures of yacht Gilana
I would go directly to the Tobago
Cays, then to Grenada
. From Grenada I would skip Venezuela
completely and get to Bonaire
, and try to spend 3 months there. Forget Curacao
is better, safer, nicer, the diving
is stunning, good supplies (Van Den Tweel) Good Laundry
, its a wonderful place. Next head
straight for the San Blas on the inside route, you don't have to stop, but on that route you can if you want to or need to. Last time we went the outer route and the wx was awful, there is a weather
"thing" that lives just north of Sta Marta. See you when you get here. Hailing channel is 72, and there is a net every am on 8107 13h30 UTC or 08h30 panamatime...
