New to the Forum

Just joined the group. We have been on a number of bareboat charters. The boats were a 45 foot Hunter and a 49 foot Beneteau. I am considering an early retirement with a goal of sailing/living in the Carribean most of the year. I am looking for any an all information around the lifestyle.

Welcome Aboard and enjoy the site.

Truth is sailing and cruising in the Caribbean really stinks.

Beautiful sunrises, sunsets, beaches, air temperature, water temp, exotic foods, great people, great scenery.

So you will have to learn to put up with a life style like that, hope you can handle the life style, LOL

It really is a great life style change.

ENJOY

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Good to have you here. That Caribbean is not too bad if you like short trips to other islands.
kind regards,
