Meanwhile, Virginia arrived in Trinidad/Tobago on Wednesday and is currently anchored off the Trinidad/Tobago yacht club. While on island, students will spend most of the week exploring the island and visiting Chacachacare. It is the westernmost of the Boca Islands between Trinidad and Venezuela. At various times in its history, Chacachacare has served as a cotton plantation, a whaling station and a leper colony.
Amistad gets underway today, bound for St. Thomas where they have a number of short charters scheduled.
