The vendors nowadays are a changed bunch, they are now called 'beach front service providers' [ not a wind up] so no worries on that front.

However at that time of the year there is always a possibility that the christmas winds will be blowing. These reinforced trades will give 20 -25 knots usually NE or ENE which will give you great off wind sailing conditions from SVG to Grenada. Tuck a reef in before you leave harbour and enjoy the ride.
