Hey everyone, first-time poster here
I took sailing lessons
(roughly 40 hours on the water) in my home base of Chicago this summer, and I think I've caught the sailing bug!
I work through the Internet
, so I tend to avoid Chicago winters. I'd like to spend January somewhere in the Caribbean
, getting some more hours sailing.
I'm looking for a place that:
- I can sail
- Will have reliable internet
- Isn't expensive (furnished apartment for <$1,500/mo)
(I'm considering Cartagena
, as I already spent the past two winters in Colombia
& am already relatively comfortable there.)
SECOND (and most important):
I'm unfamiliar with sailing culture in The Caribbean
(or, in general, for that matter), and have no idea how to get more time at the helm
. I suspect some of you on the forum may have some suggestions. I hope to find a way to make regular shorter sails
, and hopefully at least one overnight sail.
I look forward to any advice you might have. Thanks so much!
