Windsurfing in the Grenadines?
 
Hi,

I will be sailing through the Grenadines at the end of April and will be bringing my windsurfing gear with... just trying to figure out what wind range to expect that time of year so I can pack the right sails. (I have a 110L Seatrend)

Thanks in advance!

Sorry if there's a better place to post this...

You should expect steady maximum 30 knots blowing from NE. Most time they will be at the range of 20 knots. Attention: lack of wind at the lee of the islands.

good winds
 
Just got back from a week sailing the Grenadines. Blowing everyday we sailed (and night) 15-25kts. Good short board conditions much of the time

Thanks for the info! I hope it's still blowing strong at the end of April/early May. I'll have my 110L bump n jump with a 5.2, 5.8, 6.2

The cays look perfect for flat water blasting...maybe some outside (small) wave sailing?

Thanks again
