Who wants to go sailing? It’s time!
Facebook’s fashback feature presented me with the image below, taken at the Dismal Swamp Welcome Center, not long after we departed Canada on our initial trip south. It seems like so long ago, and I guess, relatively speaking, it is.
Picture yourself here!
There are a good number of people, presently following a similar path, who are sandwiched between the weather to north which is growing colder by the day, and the tail end of the Atlantic Hurricane Season which will hopefully give us no late-season storms.
The island-hopping route from North America to the Caribbean is called the Thorny Path by many for good reason. With the trade winds blowing virtually non-stop from the east, the trip is a bash to windward no matter how you approach it. Of course, this is why purchasing a boat that is already down here, one like our very own ZTC to be specific, offers a serious benefit to those who want to sail as opposed to motor.
The easterly trades seldom vary in this region!
It’s obvious that many people were uncomfortable purchasing a boat in the Caribbean during the windy season but now that it has largely passed us by, and the weather north is growing less and less favorable, we’re seriously looking for the person (couple?) who want to take ZTC sailing again. If that person is not you, perhaps you could give us a hand by sharing our PDQ 32 For Sale link to your friends, and on your social media pages.

Sailing Antigua to Barbuda… this is what it’s all about!
