Anyway, our sail down was lovely. We arrived in St Georges Bay Grenada at 11am Friday morning. We sailed into the anchorage just in time to see our cruising friends s/v Amaris pulling up their anchor for the ABC's. Fair Winds guys, sorry we missed hanging out with you in Grenada. See you in KC!!! The guides books and Active Captain say this anchorage is tricky holding and they aren't kidding. It took us 3 tries to get a good anchor set. Our cruising friend Ric off s/v Endorfin II saw us struggling came over in his dinghy to show us where a big cat was anchored successfully the day before. Thanks Ric.
If it looks like we skipped a bunch of islands, we did. It is now officially hurricane season and we needed to get further south - final destination is Trinidad, well out of the hurricane belt. However we plan to spend a couple of weeks checking out Grenada first before the final sail to Trini (as the cruiser call it). But don't fret, we plan to fully explore those islands we skipped next season.
