Originally, The Moorings was based in Mt Hartman Bay on the south coast of Grenada, but the 2-days lost
to charter customers getting from Grenada to the Grenadines convinced them to move to Canouan Island.
- - However, Hurricane
Ivan and the problems of connecting air flights from Grenada or St Vincent to Canouan for their customers has convinced them to move part of their operation back to Grenada. The now have a base at Port Louis Marina in St Georges which is 15 minutes from Grenada's international airport
- - For a week's charter you can either sail the south coast of Grenada's many bays or head
up to Carriacou in the Grenadines (which is part of Grenada) and even Petite Martinique
and PSV (which is in a sort of "neutral zone" between Grenada and SVG). So there are great opportunities for doing some sailing and fantastic places to stop and swim, snorkel, or scuba
dive and never leave Grenadian waters.
- - I have never been a great fan of SVG and the northern Grenadines (except for Bequia) as they are over run with way too many European and other charterers out of Blue Lagoon, St Vincent. I don't like crowds of rowdy and rude charterers. We get them down as far as PSV but the numbers are reduced to a half dozen rather than a hundred. In my experiences the northern and central Grenadines have very crowded anchorages
