Exploring the Caribbean Islands around St George’s, Grenada

Your voyage begins in Grenada, the spice Island of the Caribbean.  On Grenada, you really can smell nutmeg in the air.  St George’s the capital, is one of the most picturesque towns in the Caribbean.  It’s a fabulous place to explore on foot, from handsome old buildings to the Carenage harbour, interesting shops and cafes dot the narrow and busy streets.  It is well worth adding a stay in St George’s onto the start of your voyage to allow you time to explore this fascinating Caribbean town.

FAQs

I’ve never been sailing before and I’m worried about not knowing what to do.

The majority of people who sail with us have never sailed before. Don’t worry! The crew will explain things and guide you through everything you need to know to be able to sail the boat. You will get the opportunity to learn lots of new skills and have fun at the same time.

What about toilets and showers?

There are toilets and showers on board Tall Ship Blue Clipper. On Blue Clipper, there are ensuite cabins and a shared bathroom in the forepeak. When you arrive at the boat you will be given a housekeeping brief and using the toilets and showers will be explained.

How fast does the boat go?

Our average sailing speed is about 6 knots (nautical miles per hour) – that’s almost 7 land miles per hour. The maximum speed under sail can be over 10 knots. Under engine, the maximum is actually less: only 5 or 6 knots. But sailing is more fun than motoring, so even in light winds we often sail – albeit rather slowly!
