GREAT MOMENTS FROM GRENADINES.....
...Time to celebrate New Year....and start the next one...and Grain de Sable is sailing to Bequia to meet them there like in 2008 with my father on sy Ragaine II:)..If someone would have told us we will sail there 8 years later with our own boat and just two of us probably we would take it like a joke,,,
But as you see it is not a joke: And thats why we love this life. ,,,,Never say never and believe in your dreams:)
---strongly and deeply
...and one day you will have them comming true without realizing it was your drea,m....
So enjoy the photos and wait few days for longer text about our crusiing in these beautiful waters with our friend Remis and his son Andrew. Today they left our boat from St. Vincent where we are at the moment and in few minutes we will sail to Bequia...again just the two of us and the cats......
Promise to get soon fast wifi and write about our windy sailing in Grenadines....
You see this blue water?...So this is the biggest reason why we wanted to come to Caribbea sea:)...We did enjoy Suriname,,,,Tobago ( a loooot!!!!!) Grenada...but none of these islands had this colour....:)
And so since now we have this nice windward islands chain of Grenadine islands and there waters waiting to be explored...
In Grenada we received our new crew member- Remis, who flew from cold Boston to sail with us!!!
IT.S NEVER BORING HERE!
New bay new stories:)
Just put an anchor and the show started go on. There is a shallow not marked place in middle of the bay so if you do not check carefully charts or pilot books there is quite a big possibility to get stuck there. We new it so no problem. But one sailing yacht didnt and...... right in front of us they went aground. We saw all that because it happened quite close where we stay. And of course we went to help. Result, two hours of all kind of effort to take it out from the shallow, and it was out. But it needed a tug ....because the boat went hard hard to mud (that whats happens when you go fast inside any bay).
We are now in Clarkes Caurt Bay, Grenada.
Came here because we wanted to check another boatyard for next hurricane season. I mean the bay is not the most beautiful and atractive to choose, but because of a Clarkes Court marina we wanted to come here and check how it looks. One thing is when you read in internet about it, another is when you see it yourslef.
And so here we are. The boat yard looks safe and so on.,,but ...its not cheap. and don,t know..we diidnt like it too much. Also you need to pay quite a lot if you live on your boat while on dry. So need continue checking . We will.
Meanwhile we enjoy this bay. Egoi was soooooo happy to find a bar where they put Tv and football match. So here we are now:) In a perfect bar for sailors watching Barcelona- Real Madrid match!.
if you are sailor you will understand why its perfect.:) And if not, we will explain:
perfect is that bar from where sitting and drinking a beer you can see your boat at anchor:)
