Sailing in the Caribbean

June 24, 2010

Sailing in the Caribbean the crew of Whitebird have found many delightful palm tree fringed white sand beaches and spectacular coral reefs but the Grenadines are firm favourites with crew and visitors alike.

The Grenadines are the group of small islands between Grenada and St. Vincent, between 12 degrees 30 minutes and 13 degrees north.

They are constantly swept by warm easterly trade winds coming off the Atlantic at 15 to 20 knots and have a stable weather pattern of dry season (November to June) and rainy season (July to October).  The temperature is a litle over 30 degrees all year round, however in the rainy season winds are generally lighter and it is more humid.  Typically though, wave heights are less than 2 metres and the surface water temperature is around 28 degrees.

This makes sailing in the Caribbean a delight all year round.
