Considerations on where to anchor
One of the great things about Grenada is that, unlike many other islands, there are numerous good anchorages to choose from. When you hang around a place long enough, as we have here, you learn the plusses and minuses of the various spots. While all of the bays are popular here, we have noted that each of them tend to be favored by different people.
We spent almost our entire first season in Grenada anchored in Hog Island, a great spot. While there, we noted that many of the boats with wind generators preferred to stay in the adjacent Clark’s Court Bay anchorage as the wind there is pretty constant. Last night, we experienced that ourselves.
Even though the breeze was light when we went to bed, it picked up during the night. We could hear our wind generator doing its job. When we awoke this morning, we did so to fully charged batteries, a real treat. Hand in hand with the nice scenery, that’s a great reason to choose this particular spot!
This photo was taken at the St. George’s anchorage. The wind there is a lot more fickle.
