Antares University - Grenada

Debbie and I are sitting on the pool deck relaxing after completing the Antares University.  We enjoyed our time sailing aboard "Alberta Crewed"  Another Antares owner from Canada who are sailing the south end of the Caribbean.
We enjoyed great weather and sailing conditions for the course.  We had the opportunity to go from bow to stern over the whole boat.  Learn and review all the operating systems. (there are many)  Checked out all the safety systems, engines, plumbing, electrical and sails.  It was also great to talk to Craig & Laurie who have been on their sailboat for a year now and get many helpful hints about what to bring, what to buy etc.  Very informative.




 We also had the opportunity to meet a number of other soon to be Antares owners.  It was great to chat and sail with them.

It will be hard to come home after two weeks here.  28+ degrees every day, sunny and a warm breeze.  Perfect sailing weather.  I think it is snowing in Orillia today.

Grenada is a beautiful island and we look forward to returning here next December on our own sailboat on our way north.

Now it's time to return to the cold Canadian winter and enjoy the Christmas season.
