Crazy question, why not sail the Antilles and the Caribbean
I have sailed de Bahamas in winter before and there is no comparison between there, and here in the Caribbean
. Sailed from Montreal in 1995, spent summer on the east coast
then winter in the Bahamas. From there sailed here in the West Indies. Much better weather
, better food
, nicer folks. More to see, to do, to enjoy.
My boat is Canadian flagged, with no taxes, no customs problems. In Martinique
for example you can stay 18 months. No fees
, no cruising permits, no problems. You can leave your boat on land in any of the islands including south of the hurricane
belt in Trinidad.
I am writing you from Le Marin in Martinique
and there are about 1 500 sailboats here. I am sure you can find a better deal here than anywhere else. It's a buyers market. Not a good place to sell. Catamarans represent more than half the fleet. From 35 to 55 feet they abound.
