Arrived in Grenada

Current Location: Prickly Bay, Grenada
Current Position: 11 59.91 N 061 45.79 W Click to view map.
Distance sailed since last post: 79 nautical miles. View the map of our voyage track here

It was good to get out of Chaguaramas. It is a great place for getting work done, but not for chillaxing, being very industrial. 

So we had an afternoon swim and an overnight at Scotland Bay, three miles from Chaguaramas and just a few hundred meters from the open sea.

Then we left at 4am today, and sailed the 80 miles across to Grenada, arriving at 4:15pm. A good fast sail, with mild seas and steady 17 – 20kt of wind on an easy starboard fetch. Lots of current pushing us westwards, though.

So the sail was uneventful, except that neither of us have our sea legs after nine months ashore, so we both felt a bit queasy for the crossing. And no fish caught either. Lots of sargassum weed again, though. I don’t know how the local fishermen cope with this influx of weeks everywhere. And tourism has to suffer with all the beaches covered too.

We are now in cruising mode, and it’s good.

    • Noel:

      What, you got a powder day just as we left!? And I am sitting here covered up trying to avoid sunburn. What the heck.

  • Alastair McMichael:

    Great to hear you are both back on ‘Life Part 2’ – hope you have a great cruise, wherever it takes you!

    • Noel:

      Good to hear from you Alistair. Hope you are getting lots of sailing in. Did you have a good summer in the Med last year?
