Robert has charted a course down the windward side of the islands. We expect the wind to be “cleaner” and more consistent than on the leeward side. Just out of Union Island a five pound Spanish Mackeral gave itself up for this evening’s dinner.
It’s been a great day and at 2:00pm we’re entering St. David’s harbour, having averaged about 6 knots per hour over the 40 mile passage. We’ll be celebrating our arrival in Grenada with fresh fish and a glass of wine aboard Spectra.
Robert discovered a little extra icing on the cake in St. David’s. Our “old” mates Gerald and Diana, Whiskers, are on the hard here for a week of boat maintenance before heading west. We met them in Marsh Harbour, Bahamas and spent some great times with them in the Exumas.
Entering St. David's Harbour, Grenada
3,500 miles (mostly to windward) are behind us. It’s time to relax and celebrate; we've made it to Grenada.
