I know this topic has probably been done to death and I have myself contributed to related threads, but I'd like some up-to-date feedback on whether people think St Lucia
/ St Vincent / Grenada
are safe enough to cruise
. I'd really like to go back over Christmas
, but am put off by the apparent high levels of crime.
I haven't been for a few years, but have probably spent the equivalent of about 3 months cruising the area with no problems at all, despite the obvious issues published on CSSN. It does look like it might be a little worse now than previously though, but I am conscious that there are a lot of yachts in the area so the likelihood of being a victim is probably still quite low.
Anyone have recent experience of sailing in this area. Any opinions?
