Greetings from Venezuela !

Hello to all @ Cruisers Forum,
my wife and I are based in sunny Venezuela where we sail our Dufour 44 "Ujiji". We hope that we can add our sailing experiences to enhance this fantastic forum.
best regards and always a foot of water under the keel.
Gabi and Hanns

Welcome! You are sailing in an ideal area. Beautiful water, the ABC Islands close by and abundant, inexpensive fuel for the occasional wind-less day.

We hope to make it back down to your general area in a while. (years)

Welcome!

Where did you bring the boat in from. We wanted to get down that far this season, but decided there were things we just "had" to do to the boat before we came down that far. We made if from North Carolina (New Bern) down to Grand Turks. We are now on our way back up through the Bahamas.

Take care,

See you out here.

Venezuela check in

Keith,
we brought the boat in from Trinidad via Los Testigos and cleared in at Margarita Island. The folks at Nautica Express (www.nauticaexpress.org)
did all the paperwork for us (immigration, customs, national guard, 6 month cruising license, etc.) while Gabi and I went shopping. We left the boat at Hilton Hotel "marina" (can't really call it a marina, but it is the best available). From there we took a day trip to Puerto la cruz and tied up at our friend's marina ÁquaVi. We are currently cruising the Morrocoy National Park and should be back in Caracas by the end of the month, where we have our permanent slip.
If you need any assistance here in Venezuela please let me know. We are a small local cruising community and would be delighted to help in any way possible.
Fair Winds,
Hanns
S/V Ujiji
