Note from Rob:  I’ve bareboated in St. Vincent twice, once in the 90s and again last year.  It’s a wonderful place to sail and I’m excited to be on the instructor team with BOSS!  The image above is the spectacular remote reef, Tobago Keys.  When you’re anchored in that location, there’s nothing but the reef between you and Africa!
