Hello all, I am new to posting
on threads. In the past have only come here passively looking for advice.
I just sailed to TCI via Georgetown
and the plan is to keep heading south to Puerto Rico
. I have been reading a lot of the same stuff over and over, racking my thoughts about how I should attack this. Looking for anymore sailing advice for the passage
, anything would be great.
I would like to pass up the Dominican and go straight to PR.
Also, if there are any other boats in the area waiting to make the journey, would love to buddy up and caravan
I am in a 44' sloop
The way I see it so far:
1. Wait for a weather
pattern to sail East as far as I can, then head
south and end up where I end up
2. South to Luperon then hop across the Mona Passage
3. Put my boat on the hard
here for hurricane
season then reevaluate the attack plan, but would still require an attack plan
4. Chicken out and do a nice cozy sail back thru the Bahamas
(home) and charter
for the Caribbean
. Dunno how much the chartering costs, but my boat is set up for what I like to do: dive gear
Any advice and/or experience would be appreciated
