Corona News - over 800 yachts blocked in the Caribbeans

 Corona News - over 800 yachts blocked in the Caribbeans The Caribbeans offer Europeans and North Americans the best sailing conditions every winter. Now would be the time for the return trip, since the hurricane season will begin there in June. Due to the Corona-restrictions, the recruiting of crews has become difficult, and the usually planned stopovers on the Bermudas and the Azores cannot be carried out either. Those affected try now to organize themselves and start the return journey in larger fleets for safety reasons. An article in the German FAZ newspaper (translate with Google).
