In the colder climes, the leaves have turned and fallen. The boats have been hauled out and stored for the winter. The storm windows are in; the winter sweaters are out. But while we brace ourselves for winter, charter companies are just gearing up. All too aware of the woeful economy, many companies are offering especially good discounts to keep you, the charter guests, coming back for more. 35% off in St. Vincent? 10% off in Belize?
