The Windward Islands lie south of St Lucia, north of Grenada. St. Vincent and the Grenadines is located in the southeast Caribbean about 90 miles west of Barbados.

The Grenadines are comprised of roughly 32 islands and cays stretching south from St. Vincent. The Grenadines and Saint Vincent combine West Indian life with resplendent small island privacy and offer unparalleled sailing conditions. St. Vincent has many attractions ranging from cathedrals and covered markets to botanical gardens and forts. On the volcanic island of Grenada, transparent waters lap at deserted beaches whose verdant green backdrops are teeming with wildlife sustained by freshwater streams and waterfalls. Bequia is a window into the past, an old whaling port where wooden boats are still built on the beach. The French influence is very much a part of life on the islands of Martinique and Saint Lucia, creating a unique synthesis of cuisine and culture.

Cruise the Grenadines from the capital of The Grenadines on St. Vincent and the nearby islands. It is a spectacular cruising area offering good trade winds and calm seas newer leaving land or Islands out of sight.
