Pirate fun!!!
We haven't done it before, but the islandwindjammers.com website says:
"Sail the Grenadines, roundtrip Grenada, on this epic adventure. There be spice islands, and rum. Swashbuckling contests, and rum. Legends, lore, and rum. It’s safe to say we know where the rum’s gone!"

Yay! I understand Vela is full except for a solo cabin and maybe one other.
Where do you hail from? Jeff and I will be arriving Sept. 1, staying two nights at True Blue before Vela.

So is everyone going to brave it? Thought about postponing, but dealing with the travel insurance....aaagggggHHHHH! You have to be blown off an island for them to pay anything. Still looking forward to trip but a bit apprehensive at this point.

After a lot of thought and research, we went with our heads instead of our hearts and postponed--because our trip was starting this am and we had no more time to ponder. Irma is looking mean and getting nastier. See my post in Bretheren of the Coast

After talking to Kathy this morning and looking at our 2018 calendar (which is booked) we decided we're still going for it.
