After watching a weather disturbance for days we felt confident that nothing more than a bit of rain and wind was coming. Little did we know that we’d have to start sailing from a tropical storm!
Knowing that serious weather bands might cause high winds and a large swell we made a decision to sail south away from the storm to Grenada from St Vincent & The Grenadines.
