Tuck and I plus our friend Kim from Atlanta will be sailing on the Explorer cruise. There are still some cabins available, and we'd love to have you join us! Kim did the Explorer cruise last May and said it was one of her best sails ever (and she started sailing with WBC in the late 70's!!!)

I did the explorer cruise last December and it was fantastic! One of the best I have taken. Captain Scott was awesome!

Look forward to sailing with you in August. Know we'll had a blast. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask as we've previously sailed on Diamant. :D :D

Pack light. All you need are a couple of swimsuits, shorts, t-shirts, undies, toiletries, sunscreen and sunblock for lips, hat, flip flops, walking shoes, camera, book to read,and leave your stress and worries at home. It will be a fun time!!

Nathan we'll be arriving in Grenada on the evening of the 14th and staying at the Allamanda on Grand Anse Beach. Let me know when you plan to arrive,etc and we can meet. We've been to Grenada many times and can show you around...our favorite watering holes, places to eat, etc.

If you're on the edge about this Explorer Cruise....get on board! We took it last year, and it was super! Not only is it a great cruise, it makes the long flights so much more worthwhile. LOL! If we weren't doing something else at that time, well, we'd sure be on board. jacquie

I wonder of the two beauties will cross paths while Sagitta is down in
that area? I am on the ST. Lucia/Dominica/ Martinique sail and debating
on back to back weeks..... or going to check out Guedeloupe.

The French on Guedeloupe would be good for my brain. But seeing
the Grenadines again would be good for my soul.

And who could ever get sick of Grenada? Nathalie

I'm arriving in Grenada on the 14th via LIAT from St Vincent. Not sure where I'm staying at this point. Contemplating trying one of either: Kalingo, GEM or Grooms Beach Resort. I'll be on island until the morning of the 18th when I fly home. I'd enjoy hooking up with all y'all while I'm in town.
