Wow; it has been awhile since we’ve posted anything! We are now sitting in Sousa in the Dominician Republic, on our way across to Puerto Rico. We would have stayed longer at Louperon, but thought we would take advantage of a good weather window and start our passage east. We did manage to check out some of the north countyside and do this crazy waterfall climb with natural watersides for getting back down!
We spent almost a week in the Turks & Caicos, long enough for boaters in my opinion. The beaches and water are great, but there are not that many great anchorage sites that offer complete protection.
We are currently sailing with 2 single handlers; Kim of “Gaia” from Novia Scotia, and Randy of “Moonrise” from Florida. It’s much nicer having at least one other boat for these long (and occasionaly) night passages.
Plan on spending several weeks in Puerto Rico as we would like to have a few refits done (thinking about a watermaker although we have had no problems yet with good water).
