Windward islands - vendors and winds a problem?

Hi

We're planning a Caribbean charter this winter (December) and were thinking for one-way St. Vincent to Grenada, but the wife (always blame it on the wife) is concerned about the number of aggressive "vendors" (people accosting boaters for services or to sell stuff) and the possibility of blustery/high winds around the north ends of the isnlands that time of year, both of which are described by Doyle in his guide.

neither really bothers me that much, but its everyone's vacation so if either were aweful we'd probably do the BVI or Leewards instead.

We've done BVI in January and one-way Antigua to St. Maarten before.

Any guidance out there?

thanks much in advance!
