Re: Holding power of Mooring Ball required for hurricanes
We found most of the people in Curacao had no plans to head west after the season during our 6 month stay living aboard in the ABCs. They took full advantage of the Nov-Dec SE winds to sail the 500 miles (3-4 days) to the Virgin Islands on a beam reach positioning themselves for another loop through the eastern Caribbean.
In addition, I think I should mention the safety precautions a boat needs to take in order to passage to Trinidad.
With best regards,

Good morning,. If you go to Peake in Trinidad, there is a good chance you will see us there this year. We hauled there in 2017 and are planning to head back. We also hauled in Curacao in 2018 and that was good for is as well. That decision should be based on your cruising plans for the next year. Curacao is a good stop if you are heading west, but not if you want another pass up and down the eastern Caribbean.
