Grenada to Carriacou Feeder Race

Thursday 1st August was an absolutely picture perfect day, blue sky, flat sea and a nice breeze.
At 8am in the morning 10 boats gathered in St Georges at the start line for the feeder race to Carriacou.
However there was not enough wind therefore it was decided to motor up to Gouyave. Once Gouyave was reached everybody took their own start time and headed up to Carricaou for a finish in Tyrell Bay.

Results

1 Tropical
2 Tulaichean II
3 Adleme
4 Iguana
5 Apero
6 IWW Die Hard
7 Savvy
8 Baraka
9 Cat Bird

Winner Grenada Carriacou Regatta

Christain & Isabelle of SY Tropical!
Winner of the Feeder Race Grenada to Carriacou 2013

S/V Critical Path DNF
They were neck and neck with Tulaichean II on the tack into Tyrell Bay when their jib sheet block lifted up the deck so they had to drop sails.

Congratulations to the winner and big thanks to everybody who participated!

Yes we want to do it again!

How about you?
Feeder Race

Since we first raced our sailing boat in Grenada we got the ‘race bug’. Right now our lovely lady ‘Dione’ is out on the hard to be worked on. Our aim is to take part in the feeder race to Carriacou and participate in the traditional Carriacou Regatta.

If you want to sail to Carriacou but prefer to go in a group, this is a very good opportunity. The feeder race to Carriacou is a fun race you do not need a CSA rating. Everybody can join.

We leave on 1st August, 8am, from St George, however if you want to leave earlier that is fine too. Just take your own start time and let us know.

The Carriacou Regatta is a well-known regatta and was first established in 1965. Competitors from all around the world with work boats, racing boats, sailing boats and yachts compete.

You can sign up here and get all the details so we know who is participating.
