From St Lucia
one way to Grenada
and sea conditions are near ideal when sailing south. Trades blow force 4 or 5, seas are less than 2 meters and rainy days are few and far between.
But why not start from Martinique
where you get a better choice of charter boats, far better provisionning, more and better restaurants etc. Le Marin is the largest marin of the Caribbean
, you will find everything for sailing there.
Here is a tentative plan. From Martinique
1- Board at Le Marin (Martinique). Clear customs
out of Martinique.
2- Sail to Rodney Bay St Lucia
. (Clear customs
in and out of St Lucia.)
3- Sail to Marigot Bay or to the Pitons (rolly moorings).
4- Sail directly to 10 to 11hrs to Bequia some (and clear customs into St Vincent and the Grenadines).
5- Then 4 hrs to the Tobago
Whistle Bay on Mayereau.
7- Clifton on Union to clear customs out of SVG and sail to Petit St Vincent. Postcard anchorage.
at Sandy Island off Carricou after clearing customs into Grenada at Hillborough on Carriacou.
8- Sail 5hrs to St George Grenada and clear custom into Grenada at Port Louis marina. This is where you could leave the boat and fly back.
I have been sailing these waters while living aboard
