Leah’s visit – Sailing North

Leah sailing, Grenada Snowaway sailing north, GrenadaWe thought we had a good weather window for heading north for a week. So we sailed to Carriacou, an island which is part of Grenada but close to the Grenadines. We spent 2 nights in Tyrrel Bay, our first visit there in the 3 seasons we have spent in the Caribbean. It was much quieter than we expected but very beautiful. It was the first opportunity Leah had to see a sunset over the water.
Carricou, Grenada We walked to Hillsboro, the main town on the island for lunch. Along the way were great views of this beautiful island and its outer islands.
We checked out of Grenada and sailed across to Union Island, the first check-in point for St Vincent and the Grenadines. We anchored off Frigate Island while Richard and Leah went to check-in.
Salt Whistle Bay, Mayreau The next day we sailed up to Mayreau and anchored in Saline Bay. The winds had picked up a bit and we thought this was a good place for a few nights. We have never seen more than 6 boats in this bay. Both nights we were there were about 28 boats in the bay! We walked over to Salt Whistle Bay, a favorite anchorage of many cruisers and charters. We have never stopped here because it is too crowded but we can see the appeal of this bay…
