Since our last post we found room on a charter flight that would take us to St. Thomas where we can get a connection back to Miami. The flight is scheduled to leave Grenada in two weeks and we have reserved our seats and secured connections to Miami and then on to Jacksonville.
Since the COVID situation is at best uncertain and seems to not be getting any better at least in the United States, we thought long and hard as to what our next move will be for 5KNOTS and whether we want to continue cruising. We just completed our 4th year as full-time cruisers and our original plan was to cruise for at least 5 years.
We had planned to spend the past six months cruising here in the Caribbean, then leave 5KNOTS on the hard for the upcoming hurricane season and return to the USA for a few months. After hurricane season we would fly back to Grenada in January and sail 5KNOTS back to the US where we would put her up for sale. We left Grenada Dec 25th and island hopped north until we reached St. Martin on March 15th. These couple of months were fantastic until March 16th, when everything was locked down due to COVID.
