Charming, thanks. So, one is left to think that if it's in the NYT's, that there is a rather largish market of folks trapped in an urban setting watching pbs, natgeo, and the travel channel who yearn to have an authentic travel experience of other cultures
and many of that group who think a sailing vacation
at 1/3 of what they spend on hotels per nite in their working corporate life, would be like a paradise vacation
that is cheap and fits within two week's vacation time.
This is certainly not a part of most of the individual dreams expressed here, but, I know there must be a few kind humanitarian gruff captains here who could use an extra $2 grand a month (and with a tolerant mate) the odd affair with the romance-hungry paid crew that flows through the daily grind of a carribean trade
winds sailing life.
