I haven't sailed in the Caribbean
in more than 10 years, I'm just looking for a little updated advice
on the region regarding a couple of things, firstly, 3g Internet
, I'm looking to curtail the use of our Inmarsat broadband service
when we can. In the Caribbean
region, is there a single phone
company that provides 3g Internet
without having to change carrier for every island you visit or obtain new Sim cards etc that provide a decent 3g Internet connection? If there is it would just make sense to me to install a high gain 3g/UMTS Antenna
on the boat
Next off I have heard some fairly recent what I would call rumors about piracy
in the area becoming a bit of a problem, is there any truth to this, and or any strategy to avoid the problem?
I've also been doing a bit of a search round the net for customs
issues between all the islands, as I remember it was a bit of a nightmare with the amount of paperwork I had to fill out last time, is there any one single
unified resource private or government
that has updated info on all the procedures regarding this now?
Lastly, I'm what races are sailed in the Caribbean now, as we would be very interested in sailing in a few in perhaps 2012.
Any info anyone could provide would be great.
