We cleared out of Grenada at the Port Luis customs and immigration office this morning after a 5 week enjoyable stay. This afternoon at about 3:30 or 4pm we will head off for a 3 day downwind sail to Bonaire. We’re really looking forward to some of the great snorkeling that Bonaire is supposed to have.
The plan is to sail on a starboard tack WNW, then gybe and head WSW to Bonaire. This keeps us off the Venezuelan islands by about 25-50 miles. That should be enough to stay out of trouble. We know of a number of boats that have headed west to Bonaire, but only one that has decided to stop off at the Venezuelan out islands. They are there now, and are probably having a great time. But????
