Get It While It’s Hot
Summer can be cooler—this observation includes the temperature—in the Caribbean than where I live, in Massachusetts, and the water is always warmer. More important, the wind always blows, which is more than I can say for my home waters.
Now is a good time to take advantage of the hot summer rates offered by all the bareboat-charter companies in the Caribbean. You can sail longer, for less, and sail into anchorages that can be unavailable (because they’re filled up when you get there, or because they’re exposed to winter’s northerly swells) at other times of year. You should find, too, that airfares are lower and seats more available. As always, check individual company Web sites for more details. Amy Ullrich
