]3 mos from today ,6 of us on a 44ft will be starting in blue lagoon
, sailing ,stopping as we head
south to grenada . Any thoughts on routes to take to our final stop in grand mal bay in grenada.
Yes. Have sailed the Grenadines for 4 years. Blue Lagoon is a very nice bay to start. South end of St Vincent and protected by a reef, you'll have several offers of locals taking the boat out, but this is not necessary. Leave the south exit in good light or the west exit with good water
How long is the sail. If you call ahead you can sail up to Cumberland bay(couple of hours) and havecacpleasant night stern tied.
Bequia is not to be missed. Visit thecturtlecfarm and the homes built into the rocks. Frangipani restaurant is a good spot to take in an evening meal. I would miss Canaoun and sail either to Mustique of Salt
Whistle Bay. Mustique is a bit rolly, and the island is limited to doing an island tour of the homes of the rich and arrogant. But worth a visit to say you've been there. Mayreau is an excellent place to go prior to the entering Tobago
Cays. Good protection and one can anchor
in several bays. Tobago
Cays deserves several days, at least three. Then off to Union, PSV and a picnic on Mopion. My favourite veg out anchorage is on the sand bar off PSV. Take the dinghy
from there to Mopion. Guests love it.
Then off to Carriacou and Tyrell Bay. Look for Simon the wine guy in his boat. Good Chilean wine for about 5 dollars. The sail across to Grenada is usually windy, and for some reason mostly to wind
. No stops really until you get to Grand Mal Beach. Try Prickly Bay, for a good anchorage. I spent hurricane
Emily in St. David's Bay at anchor
Let me know how long you have and I'll recommend a bit more detail. For snorkelling and being away from the crowds, this is a good part of the eastern Caribbean
