Grenada
A superb sail from Carriacou took us to Grenada, the island that was devastated by Hurricane Ivan in 2004.  Here we spent a couple of weeks in St Georges relaxing, and during this time I completed my Advanced Open Water Diver course.  There are some spectacular wreck dives off Grenada as well as some beautiful scenery inland.  We teamed up with Iceni to do a day's tour inland seeing abandoned aircraft at a disused airfield, the solar powered Grenada Chocolate Factory and a Rum distillery.  We also spent a week ashore at Spice Island Marine for a much-needed anti-foul and topsides polish.  This yard took a direct hit in Ivan, and hundreds of boats were destryed in this yard! As it is now hurricane season we were not sorry to leave and sail overnight to Trinidad.
