Just another passage
Later today, when most cruisers will be sitting down to enjoy their sundowners, Rebecca and I will be raising anchor to begin making our way towards Trinidad. It’s been almost three years since we made this passage and we’re looking forward to seeing our Trini friends again when we arrive.
Unfortunately, the wind is forecast to be a bit more south than we would like. Why not wait for better weather? Because we’ve managed to get ourselves tied up with the bane of all sailors, a schedule. Yes, we need to make it to Trinidad, get our projects completed, and then make it back to Grenada to welcome our daughter and granddaughter who are coming to visit!
Note: I know for a fact that with the high amount of commercial traffic that is common on this passage, we’re really going to miss the excellent Standard Horizon Matrix VHF radio with AIS that we have installed on ZTC. Sadly, neither of the chandleries here have one in stock. If they did, I’d buy one today and install it before we leave.
