Grenada is one of the Caribbean’s top yacht charter destinations and when you sail into St. George’s harbor, it’s easy to see why. Known as the Isle of Spice and bursting with lush green forests ashore, cruising here offers the best of the Caribbean weather, vibrant local culture and luxury hotspots.
One of the most exciting events of the winter season is Grenada Sailing Week, which this year takes place from January 27 to February 04. The six-day regatta is the beginning of the racing season in the southern Caribbean, with four action-packed days in warm waters and under blue skies. The event is also renowned for its eventful evening program of drinks and social parties.
In recent years, Grenada Sailing Week has attracted many spectators who enjoy the race from the deck of their private superyachts. The ever-changing winds, varied levels of sailors taking part and warm weather is a perfect combination for an entertaining yet relaxing viewing experience. All races are held against the colorful backdrop of Grenada’s hillside houses and deep green landscape.
