There we were happily drawing lines on charts for a course to steer, when this little note was spotted in the middle of the line: "Submarine volcanic activity exclusion zone 0.81 mile radius". The yachtmaster course never mentioned volcanos as potential sailing hazards; a letter to the RYA regarding syllabus is called for!

Should be in Tobago Cays tomorrow for some serious snorkeling around the reef, which will be nice as it is very hot here at the moment ................ sorry!
