Tired of Rock & Roll, Two Days of Smooth Jazz

When the enhanced trade winds blow 20+ knots for nine straight weeks, the seas state becomes, shall we say, noticeable. Even in what look like protected anchorages the swell still wraps around the corner and comes back into the harbor. This means the wind and wind chop are on the bow and the swell is off the stern quarter.

Translated – less than comfortable when the boat is rocking and rolling at anchor.

Solution – read the cruising guide, find one of the few marinas in the area, and spend two nights tied up to a dock. Smooth Jazz.

We found the Sandy Lane Marina on Canouan – calm and quality sleep at last.

Never did meet the owners of Four Jacks

Bonus was their restaurant on the beach with a swimming pool and lounge chairs overlooking the Tobago Cays in the distance.

But enough relaxation- Dragonfly is for exploring, so off to the Tobago Cays!
