Suggested 1week itinerary from Grenada
DAY 1 : From base at True Blue Bay, make an early start for an exhilarating day sailing to Tyrrel Bay, on the island of Carriacou (30nm). Anchor amongst the local fishing boats and dine ashore or BBQ the fish you caught on the passage from Grenada.
DAY 2 : Take a swim at Sandy Island, a flawless sandy spit with no more than half a dozen palm trees, before visiting Hillsborough to pick up fresh fruit and vegetables at the market, as well as to clear out of Grenadian territory. Sail over to Petit St. Vincent (10nm) and anchor behind the reef to the north east of the island. Dinghy ashore for an excellent meal at the exclusive hotel on PSV.
DAY 3 : The dramatic peaks of Union Island are a short down-wind sail away. Enter Clifton Harbour and complete check-in formalities for St. Vincent territory. Set sail for palm-lined Saltwhistle Bay on the north west shore of Mayreau (12nm). Snorkel the reef on Grand Col Point. Hidden behind the pristine beach and palms of Saltwhistle Bay nestles a fine resort where you can enjoy dinner Flintstone-style on rock tables.
DAY 4 : Take an early morning stroll to the top of Mayreau and enjoy the magnificent views of the Tobago Cays and surrounding islands. Navigate the channel to the Tobago Cays (5nm) under the midday sunlight. The horseshoe reef offers limitless snorkeling and some fine drift dives. Dine aboard under the stars, in the knowledge that you are in one of the most spectacular anchorages on earth..
DAY 5 : Sail back to cosmopolitan Clifton Harbour to check out of St. Vincent territory, then ease the sheets for a great down-wind sail to Tyrrel Bay on Carriacou (15nm).
DAY 6 : One last passage to Grenada and overnight at Prickly Bay (35nm), a large tranquil bay on the south coast of Grenada. Enjoy exclusive dining at one of the best restaurants on the island. At weekends, dance the night away to the local sounds of the steel pan band at the Boatyard.
DAY 7 : A short leisurely sail brings you back around to True Blue Bay Marina (5nm) for a noon finish.
