EOD Location: Tyrrel Bay Anchorage, Carriacou, Grenada
Miles Traveled: 122
Weather: Mostly sunny, breezy (12-18), high-70s
Highlights: Had a beautiful clear night and morning for sailing, with winds out of the east between 12-18 knots, and waves for the most part were less than 3 feet from the NE, especially while in the lee of the islands. We passed Dominica, Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Bequia, Mustique, and the rest of the Grenadines, and as each island faded in the distance, we vowed to visit and explore each one more fully on our returning trip north. By early afternoon, we were running a bit behind schedule, and since we never want to arrive at a new anchorage after dark, we started one engine and motor-sailed the rest of the day, averaging almost 8 knots. Arrived in Tyrrel Bay just as the sun was setting with only 1 engine working (the v-belt on the starboard engine was loose, and no water was being pumped through the coolant system), so we quickly dropped anchor in the first available open space, shut down the boat, and then crashed for the night.
