This past February we did Le Marin - Pitons one day, Pitons-to a small bay on St V (petit Bayeau?) the next. It was an easy few hours sail to Bequia from there.
Spent 3 enjoyable days in Bequia - do some walking!
Bequia to Mayreau another day, the next morning to the Tobago Cays for snorkeling, then off to the lee of a nearby island for the night.
Snorkeled a reef off Petit St V next, anchored nearby for the night. Next day was to Union Island to check out of SVG, then on to Carriacou (caught a 4 foot Mahi Mahi along the way!!)
Carriacou very low key, laid back, great locals and quiet (near deserted) beaches. Spent another 3 days here. The local buses are must-dos!
An easy daysail to St Georges from Tyrell Bay where we unfortunately had to catch a flight home. St Georges hot hot hot, busy esp after Carriacou's quiet scene. Y.C. Marina was hospitable.
All these trips were day trips, in a Bene 36.7 usually in 15-20 knot reaching breezes. Couldn't get much better!
