Monday, July 30 : to Port Louis Marina, St. George’s, Grenada (map)
We motored some and sailed some down the east coast of Grenada to the main port, where we took a slip in the fancy Port Louis Marina. (We plan to stay here until Wednesday, August 1st.)

Oil down is the national dish in Grenada. (There is a recipe on the official government website: http://www.gov.gd/articles/grenada_oil_down.html. However, don’t follow this recipe; it hasn’t been tested: the chicken was left out.) Key ingredients are salted meat, coconut milk, chicken, callaloo (rather like spinach), and breadfruit and other provisions such as dasheen and plantains.
Saturday, July 21st at Petite Calivigny Bay, Grenada
The Phare Bleu yacht club hosted a day of Hobie Cat races at the marina. Although Pete had never been on a Hobie Cat before, he signed up to race. After all, he races monohulls and he sails a catamaran — no problem, right?
Today, on On Delay, Pete and Gayle show you how to make a Franken-paddle.
An occasional series of practical recipes to cook aboard using the ingredients at hand.

Many of you enjoyed our early post about out first boat pet, Arthur. (See Our day with Arthur, the tiny octopus.)
This post is about our second boat pet Beverly, a Grenadian gecko. (I decided that our boat pets should be named sequentially, A, B, C, etc.) Continue reading
So far, I’ve divided the adventure into three phases:
- Phase 1 (April to mid-May) : Preparing us and the boat to leave Fort Lauderdale.
- Phase 2 (mid-May to July 9th) : Sailing the boat from Fort Lauderdale to Grenada. Grenada was a big destination because while we were north of Grenada, the boat was not insured against named storms (like Alberto, Beryl, Chris, and Debby).
- Phase 3 (now until TBD) : Working on the boat in Grenada and Trinidad. We’re in the second round of repairs and maintenance, fixing and improving things that we discovered during our 2700 miles of sailing in phase 2.
