Isle de Ronde - Round Island
27 November 2018
Quiet early morning in Corn store Bay with a view to The Sisters and Grenada
This is the southernmost of the Grenadines except for some rocks between here and Grenada. There live a couple of families on the south side of the island, but for the rest it is uninhabited. Corn Store Bay in the north is a very idyllic anchorage although it could be a little bit jumpy when the swell finds it way in. About 5 km to the west is Kick em Jenny, Caribbean's only active underwater volcano. When there is an eruption the waters around are dangerous because the gases makes the density of the water lower than normal, causing Archimedes Law not to work. Vessels have disapered there......Luckily nowadays there are warnings!
