[Captains Blog] Grenada

Yesterday, we finally got our hands on the dreaded switch that was causing us to yo-yo between Carriacou and Grenada, and within 40 minutes, the new one was wired in, fitted and working. 

It's been a funny old week weather wise, with strong gusting winds and quite big seas as a result. We sailed back down the windward side of Grenada which was a much better passage until the last couple of hours when the wind decided to swing around right on our tail but shifting constantly from side to side making it difficult to goose-wing. Forecast is for 10-13 feet seas at the weekend when we are planning to head north again, so it could be a rough ride!
