This part of the Grenadines is superb cruising. Union Island, Mayreaux and Tobago Cays are all within about 2 hours of each other on a light wind day. Can't say I have seen too many of those this season! Tobago Cays is the closest thing I have seen to the South Pacific in the Caribbean.Azure and turquoise waters and sandy beaches and the ubiquitous palm tree. It is a Marine Park so everything is protected.The turtles seem to know this and you can actually swim quite close(1-2 meters) from them. I actually saw a youngin swim up slowly and touch a very large turtle.
I am a sailor. Cashed it all in in 2003 and sailed around the NW USA then went to Mexico for two years then sailed to Australia on a Baltic 42. Sold the boat in OZ and bought a Privilege 42 in Venezuela. Not fully retired so have been doing the nuclear steam generator change out gig to recharge my financial batteries. Work 13-15 hours a day for two to three months. Make great money quickly so I can get back to the boat.
