? Should we stay in trinidad living aboard
for the whole period? Will we have to stay all the time at the same place?
Also we need some sailing school
to improve our sail skills, any tips?
Also, is there a cruising/ sailing permit
mandatory to the region? We have a coastal permit
and there wont be time to take captain's permit here.
thanks for the help!
I lived on land in Trinidad for 6 months. Ring up for Don's roti. So good. Richard's shark and bake from Maracas is excellent as well.
Practice makes perfect. So get out there.
Lots of good anchors and heavy warps for hurricanes and lots of protection for chafe. Normal days lots of chain if in coral
especially if u are thinking of the south pacific
is an excellent anchor
and sets very fast.
Get out there, be cautious, for me I won't enter unfamiliar anchorages
at night. Have fun.
U couldn't do a better thing for your kids than take them cruising.
