Hello All,
Looking for any Sailing trip reports for Grenada. We want to try a new cruising ground and we hear the sailing there is a bit more “Blue Water”. We are thinking of going this April (2008) and want to know what the conditions may be like from Grenada to the Tobago cays.
Thanks,
Joe

I would suggest that you try here...

http://www.doyleguides.com/index.html

One of the better sites that does not deal with just charters. Chris Doyle sells a good guide and it is backed up with internet updates. Are you sailing down the east coast then? This site covers the areas you are interested in, from Grenada to the Tobago cays, including town maps...
information like:
ST. VINCEN T AND THE GRENADINES

A change in the customs fees - you now pay $35 EC per person per month, the charter fee yacht license is now $5 EC per foot per month, occasional charter license is $125 EC. There is now a penalty of $20,000 for not clearing in.

The Tobago Cays National Park is up and running. The charges are $10EC per person per day. It is a big improvement. The islands are clean and pleasant again. They have put in a big restricted area for viewing turtles and the water taxis are obeying the speed limit which is 6 knots for ALL craft including dinghies.

for some great views, try the Bird's Eye view of harbours and entrances (if you are in the US). The aerials of the Islands show bays and shallows pretty well.

Hope that helps. Fair sailing
