FINALLY! CRUISING DOWN
SOUTH IS POSSIBLE AGAIN!
Welcome to the October 2021 issue of Canadian Yachting magazine!
We are delighted to return to our traditional October theme of Waypoints
- Winter Cruising. It's been close to two years since we
could fl y to the glorious yacht charter destinations in the
Caribbean, but fi nally, the airlines are fl ying again and
the yacht charter companies are welcoming us back to
paradise!
We all need to be realistic. COVID isn't going away
and we are not getting any younger, but hopefully we are
getting smarter. Recently, I did my fi rst out-of-Canada trip
and I want to share a few words of advice from my experience.
First, you can travel now, but COVID has made it more diffi cult. So,
for the fi rst time in decades, I used a travel agent to help me navigate the
myriad of rules and regulations that can change without much warning. I
recommend that highly!
It seems to me that governments are covering all contingencies in their
legal disclaimers, asking the maximum in their compliance requests and
everything is now online in fact, some information is now only on cell
phone apps. Forget trying to get a live person to assist you - everything
is automated.
You almost can't travel without a cell phone and just because your
spouse has one does not mean you will be covered. Make sure it's fully
charged before you go! You could make your own plans, but booking
through a travel agent who has airport information, up to the minute
COVID regulations and more, is a smart move. Also, we strongly
recommend you work with a reputable charter company who can guide
you through their local regulations and travel facilities. Pre-plan a
COVID quarantine solution should you happen to test positive and get
a comprehensive insurance policy for COVID coverage. Unexpectedly
spending 14 days in a foreign country could be very expensive. Find out
in advance about medical and hospital access. Be prepared for anything
before you go. Make it easy on yourself - it's a vacation to paradise!
But then, when you arrive, you will probably fi nd the people in the
host country are more appreciative than ever, that you are there. Between
COVID and hurricanes, we are blessed to still have a charter vacation
industry!
In the Waypoints - Winter Cruising feature this issue, veteran charter
cruisers Mark and Sharon Stevens have compiled a round-up of their
favourite charter destinations and their best photography in this eightpage
Feature, Heading South.
The Stevens hit the highlights; Antigua and Barbudo, St. Vincent and
the Grenadines, Sint Maartin / St. Martin, Belize, Grenada and even
Marsh Harbour in the Abacos. Time to start planning that Caribbean
cruise for 2022!
Also, fi nd out who won the " Win A Schaefer Yacht " contest partnership
with Yacht Solutions that we published in the February 2021 issue of
Canadian Yachting magazine. See the winners and their friends on board
the Schaefer 303 for their fi rst cruise and read about their experience. And,
for good measure, we have a full Power Boat Review on the Schaefer 303
prize boat!
Also, in this Canadian Yachting magazine, read the very fi rst review of
the new Oakley 245 CC cuddy cabin with it's Suzuki 250 outboard, the
gorgeous Fountaine Pajot 42 catamaran, and more!
