Ok Shipmates we are down to 3 months and 3 weeks and 1 day. Last time I talked to IWJ they told me the boat/Vela was over 50% booked and that was 3 weeks ago. so who else is sailing. This will my 7 and 8 week of Sailing IWJ. Have sailed both Diamant and Vela already.

This week I went to B of A and got my euros and EC dollars for the trip.. If you don't know but FWI wouldn't take dollars or EC dollars. No charge if you have an account. Anything left over I will include with my end of trip tip. Understand the crew will be happy to take dollars, euro or ec.

I am arriving on the 8 Dec and staying at JJ Paradise. I am flying from Miami on AA . Looking for someone to share a shuttle to Marigot Bay.

Paul

Mike and Bev, Hello. I don't know what will happen with this trip and the major damage to the islands of Dominica, Llse de Saintes and Marie Gallant ( Guadeloupe ). Cannt really start worrying because we still are in the heart of hurricane season. Hopefully, and praying not to see any more storms in this area this season. To answer your question about my post . FWI (which I haven't done yet) doesn't take American money and you need Euro. I got mine already but I might suggest holding off until we see if there is a schedule change with this trip. I have done the Windward Islands twice with IWJ. 12 days each time . It wasnt on the Vela but on the Diamant. I have no problem going back to the Windwards. The other trip I made with IWJ was a 12 day trip last year on Vela in BVI. If you want, PM and ask me questions or pm and Ill send you a phone number. I live in the center of NJ. I hope this helps. Paul
p.s picture of me on Salt Whistle Bay Mayreau St Vincent Islands
