Summer in Grenada or Trinidad

Greetings:


We are planning to cruise to SE Caribbean for next summer to hide during hurricane season. The current plan is to summer in Grenada or possibly Trinidad.


We are a trawler but hang with sailors all the time. Would love to hear any stories, comments, factual or anecdotal regarding climate, storms, safety and security, great anchorages, etc.


Also interested in knowing if any of you have had refits done in these islands as we considering a repaint. Thank you.

Re: Summer in Grenada or Trinidad

It wasn’t our intention but we wound up spending a year in Chaguanas, Trinidad, most of the time on the hard at Peake’s Yacht Services. We found it to be a very good facility although it was expensive. The cruising community was mostly supportive and active but with occasional bouts of petty ‘disagreements’. Most trades were skilled and some we found to be competitively priced but some of the quotes we received were stratospheric. The marina area felt safe to us but we were warned about venturing into other places on the island, especially at night. The weather is tropical and hot year round. There are very few beaches and Trinidad doesn’t attract many tourists.

Fair winds and calm seas.
