I can only speak for "my" area (Grenada to St. Lucia), but the Imray-Iolare charts
are far superior for these areas, and the guides by Chris Doyle are great. Most of my guests think that the Tobago
Keys are wonderful (I like 'em, too), and I'm quite fond of Bequia (some great places to provision). My personal taste, however, is to get away from the crowds ... and if I told you where I go, well ... you get the idea!! ;-)
St. Georges, Grenada
is also excellent for provisioning
Tyrrel Bay on Carriacou is a wonderful place for repairs
, upgrades, etc. Excellent little boat yard (it's where I keep La Nostra off season), a Frenchman on a barge for great aluminum
and stainless work, a good sail loft which will also do all sorts of canvas
, etc. and some very good food
Hey - come on down, wander around a bit and make your own choices!
Oh, yes - we're below the hurricane
belt and 99% miss us, but try telling that to the victims of Ivan in '05!
