25 knots of wind aft the beam makes for good sailing and with the
exception of the odd very wet squall we had a fast sail leaving the Kicking
Jenny underwater volcano exclusion zone to starboard and down the west side of
Grenada to St George. George, the un-sainted one, tried his hand at
fishing but concluded that the gear was too sophisticated – no strikes
this time unfortunately.
The entry into St George is one of the great city views of the Windward Islands. The fine brick buildings were
built using bricks brought out from Europe
when the sailing boats were in ballast and bricks were a cheap and disposable
way of achieving the required weight.
We decided to spend two nights in the new Port Louis marina to give us time to explore
St George . In the evening we ate ashore at BB’s Crabback
restaurant overlooking the Careenage. The eponymous BB is Grenadian but
grew up in Shepherds Bush. We think that he had had a good lunch as
service was unusual!
