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:)
