Passport to Adventure Sailing the Grenadine Islands Caribbean
On a sleek, 64 foot sloop, hosts Mark Jennings &Julie Conover get a feel for life on the open sea and a taste of the exotic West Indies. On the island of St. Lucia, one of the Caribbean’s most spectacular hideaways, lies nestled in the jungle covered hillside of the island’s trademark pitons. These striking peaks tower over a smoldering caldera, where mineral rich water boils to the earths surface. After a short flight south, Mark &Julie begin their windward adventure, sailing north to idyllic snorkeling and diving in the Tobago Keys, then on to the mist shrouded rim of an active volcano on Saint Vincent. On the island of Mustique, they ride horses on the beach before setting sail for a historic whaling port on the island of Bequai. From learning to handle the helm and sails, to enjoying the nightly sunset spectacle, Mark &Julie uncover the mystique that surrounds the life of those adventurous few who see the world from their floating home.
