FIVE Hours to Travel FIVE Miles???

Current Location: St. David's, Grenada
Current Position: 12 1.25 N 061 40.75 W Click to view map.
Distance sailed since last post: 5 nautical miles. View the map of our voyage track here

10 am we weighed anchor to sail a few miles east to St. David’s harbour. Just to visit a different place.

We knew it would be a beat (upwind) the whole way, as well as straight into the west flowing Equatorial Current. But we never expected it to take 5 hours to complete the journey! Each time we tacked we seemed to be retracing the exact path we had just sailed.

Still, it was a lovely sail in a nice 20 knot breeze.

St. Davids is very small – just 8 other boats moored here – but a good WiFi connection through Grenada Marine.

We will chill out here for a few days before going back to Prickly Bay to get our new Wind Generator installed.

  • You’re going to regret leaving your comments turned on. I know more about you than almost anyone. But my silence can be bought for a price 🙂

    Glad you’re back living the life, buddy.

    Have a Red Stripe on me. In a glass of course.
