Re: Is it windier?
Seems the windward side of Grenada is a better sail as you are then going downwind to get into the southern most bays. Wife wants to see the sculptures at Dragon so we’ll go down on the leeward side this time and just motor if we have to to get to Prickly to get diesel. Clarke’s has no diesel. Any other thoughts on good easy places so I can leave the tanks full for the summer?
The Yacht club in St Georges may have cheaper fuel than Prickly. Easy in and out. If I were you I'd stay at the St Georges anchorage as long as possible, at least until a northerly swell pushes you out. You can dinghy to the supermarket, hardware store, and Island Water World, just to name a few, whereas Prickly is at least a bus ride for anything other than budget Marine.
Turbulence is a good place for any sail repairs. Though it may take time (they can be busy). We've gotten very good quality work for a fair price.
