St. Vincent offers one of the finest sailing grounds in the world. Cruising under the heights of this green island is a real pleasure. St. Vincent is a great base if you would like to set your sail to Union Island and call at one of about ten islands that lie in a string stretching in between. The islands on your way are all distinctive- some of them are better developed while others have remained pristine and untouched. The encounter with local communities living their peaceful life will certainly be a great experience of the culture of the Caribbean. An example of a popular stopover is The Tobago Cays - there are no buildings at all, but you can moor 200 yachts there.
The Grenadines chain is prone to the strong wind from the Atlantic Ocean. The currents and swells are relatively strong. The islands are placed a bit further apart from each other, which makes visual navigation harder. Navigation in the Grenadines demands good sailing skills.
Most of the coves of St. Vincent offer great infrastructure for sailors as well as restaurants and bars. You can pay by card only in larger premises and the currency is The Eastern Caribbean dollar. All of the larger islands around St. Vincent, except for Mayreau can offer cash machines and bank services.
An important thing to consider is the climate. The peak season runs from December to April. In January the temperature is is 29°C (85°F) on average.
