My GF is attempting to be the first woman from her country to visit all 329 countries and territories. We're just over 100 now (thanks Covid). But looking to get back traveling in October 2022.
Going through Central and South America
- and will be up in Trinidad in late March 2023.
She doesn't have a US visa (and no plan for one this trip). There are 31 territories in the Caribbean
, 27 of them we can reach.
While it's completely doable via ferries and flights - I thought it might be interesting to see if it's within our budget
a sailboat with captain
. We only want to anchor
3 days at each destination
- so it's about a 3 month charter
My father, who's been sailing around the Caribbean
for the last decade or two advised any charter with a motor
would be too expensive. His suggestion was to look for unpaid crew ads - but I'm far too old for that.
Just wondering what we could expect to pay for that long of a charter in a no-nonsense no-frills sail boat
(not the dark triangle - just the rest).
Anyone advise on weekly/monthly costs for something like this?
Or is it a wildly undoable flight of fantasy?
