A 10 Day sailing route from Le Marin to the Grenadines

Before setting sail, you will be able to refuel and stock up on supplies easily, ready to get under way on your cruise to the Grenadines
Head for Saint Lucia (Sainte-Lucie), a volcanic Caribbean island. You will be able to moor along one of the coconut tree lined beaches where they filmed the famous Pirates of the Caribbean films. As evening approaches, dock at the port of Castries, the most important town in Saint Lucia, which is in a well sheltered bay. Remember to check what authorization is required and what customs procedures are in operation at each stage of your cruise.
Day 3 - Castries to Pitions Bay (13 miles)
Continue along your cruise towards Marigot Bay. On your to-do list: take a swim in the calm waters and walk in the sunshine. Visit La Soufrière, a small picturesque town which is very easily accessible on foot. In the afternoon, make your way back to Pitions Bay, and take the opportunity to discover the many waterfalls, hot water springs and volcanoes. An unforgettable journey, between the mountains and the sea.
On this fourth day of your trip, hoist your sails and head in the direction of Bequia, the second largest island of the Grenadines.
