Caribbean Adventures Part TWO!

On Our Way!

Grenada here we come… so close and yet so faaaaaar away.  A little scary during the official “H” season… we tried to find help to get her there in one shot but had no success… appears everyone bails out of the north islands during this time….go figure!  And so, we find ourselves making our way tentatively south through the chain.  A little disconcerting but we are cautiously following weather models, checking carefully and planning our hops daily as we get updates.   Our passage from BVI to St Martin was good, despite not being able to sail we had moderate seas and light winds and were able to make great time.  This is so different than having to do an overnight… we are loving the conveniences of our speedy catamaran.  We have made it as far as St Kitts and hope to get to perhaps Martinique before the next blow comes through.

toasting our first long passage! Thanks Chris and Karen for the delicious treat!

Our hideaway at Christophe Harbor has been quite delightful… we are only 1 of the 3 boats currently berthed.  With limited facilities in place the rates are incredibly reasonable… sadly this won’t last for long as they finish this gorgeous site.  We will enjoy it whilst we can.

proudly Canadian! Official registration complete…. hailing port, Edmonton, AB… really!

our visit in to Basterre to check in has Kathy making friends with the locals. Franklin, the weatherman, provides his advice and special drink and Kath just can’t escape

in addition to “engine room yoga” we have also added “Crew Coffin gymnastics” to our mantra…. this is where my beautiful friend the “watermaker” calls home

and why not a hike in the heat of the day?

Because the reward turns out to be….

at the Pavillion….where we find out we are welcomed with our marina berth… this is an over the top 7 star I am sure resort…. but hey, why not?

infinity pool and all

As we continue to adventure and enjoy this chapter I was amazed to read online today a summary of the “Good and Bad of A Sagittarian” and here it is:  “The biggest fear is being bored and stuck in the same routine for the rest of their lives”… not happening!  What a beginning to another great adventure!

  2. Love your blog, had a look at the specs of Grand Cru. Very impressed. May I make a suggestion about your anchor. We had a Delta on Kool Kat and one stormy night dragged halfway across Prickly Bay. Next day bought a 40kg Rocna. Never dragged again. A friend had 30kg Rocna on their Leopard 47 and were quite happy with it. Does your AIS transmit?
    I follow Banyan when they are on the water.

    Cheers Malcolm

    • Hey Malcom! THanks for the tips.. yes, it is on our list for sure…we had hoped to get one in St Martin but our stop was too short…. IWW Grenada here we come! We have AIS receiver but doesn’t transmit. Hugs to you both!

  3. Guess I don’t have your Email, anyway tree is down, no major damage, few dents, left the tree for you neighbor to clean-up and evidence.
