Secret Harbour Sky High

04 October 2016
I just saw this cool aerial shot of the Marina on their FaceBook page.It was probably taken in early 2016. Baruna is towards the bottom of the frame, on the inside of the "T" head dock, on the left side of the main dock as you look from right to left. Phil's Grady White is the white boat docked right in front of the Marina building.

Back on the Hard

15 April 2016 | Grenada Marine, St. David's Harbour, Grenada
Baruna's just been put in its steel cradle. We still need to take down the jib and canvas, remove all running rigging, stow the outboard and prep the boat for storage until next season. It was very hot and there was little wind. Needless to say, Jennifer and I have spent more pleasant times on Baruna than those few hours! We would have preferred one more sailing trip before hauling out, but many of our sailing buddies are going to be in the 2016 Newport to Bermuda Race in June, or have other commitments. Oh well, we have more time to dream about next season!

La Sagesse Bay

14 April 2016 | La Sagesse Bay, Grenada
We decided to anchor in La Sagesse Bay (just off the port bow) the night before haul out at Grenada Marine in St. David's Harbour the next morning. You can see that we've already removed the main, which we did at Secret Harbour Marina (difficult to find the space at Grenada Marine). We had this beautiful Bay to ourselves. It was a bit rolly, but we've seen worse. However, the bottom is a very fine, hard sand, which made anchoring with our CQR challenging. It eventually set, but I set the Danforth off the bow at 45 degrees to be sure. We enjoyed dinner at the hotel restaurant on the beach, which has very good food and great people.

Cocoa

13 April 2016 | Belmont Estate, Grenada
We stopped at Belmont Estate on our way back South to Baruna. The Grenada Chocolate Factory makes chocolate there, using cocoa beans from the plantation. They have a totally green operation and roast the beans in the sun. They have women turn the beans by sliding their feet through them, as Jen is doing here.

Sunrise at Petite Anse

13 April 2016 | Sauteurs, Grenada
We decided to play tourists this trip by spending a night at the Petite Anse Hotel - a small, 11 bed room hotel on Grenada's North coast. Spectacular setting, excellent food and great people. We highly recommend a visit! That's Caille and Ronde Islands in the distance.

Riding the Main

07 January 2016
We took the girls sailing, from Mt. Hartman Bay, to the Underwater Statue Park. This was on our way back South, just before we anchored off Aquarium on Grand Anse to do some snorkeling. We're cracking along here on a beam reach in flat water at 8 kts.
