To Union Island


Our first border crossing of the new season, from Grenada to St. Vincent and the Grenadines. We went into town in Hillsborough to check out of Grenada (and have a last Roti for lunch). But the Immigration office in Hillsborough only does immigration, not customs, and we had to pay customs to extend our Grenadian cruising permit to December before we could check out of the country.

So, took a taxi to Tyrell Bay to visit the customs office, and check out, there. Back to Trap's in Hillsborough for fish and lambi (conch) rotis, which were excellent again. That plus a last tub of nutmeg ice cream, put us in a food coma for the rest of the day.


Had a nice easy sail up to Clifton, on Union Island. The wind was pretty steady, and 3 tacks took us into the Clifton bay. The quarantine anchorage is in the fairly narrow area between a reef and the main shipping channel, so we're sticking out a bit, into the channel. But that doesn't seem to bother the big ferries that come into Clifton at all, they happily squeezed behind us.


Most of the PCR test results arrived as we did in Clifton, but one didn't. We'll chase it up, and check in to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, in the morning.
