We awoke on course through the Grenadines, with Bequia to the east of us and Canouan off the port bow. We watched as the able-bodied seamen put up a dozen sails before breakfast. We then took engine room tours with the chief engineer and learned about the intricate workings of the mechanical aspects of the Sea Cloud.

On the Lido Deck, Tom Heffernan gave a talk on Caribbean languages and their Arawakan, African, and Indo-European roots.

Our destination, Carriacou, is part of the country of Grenada. We anchored in Tyrell Bay, where there was good swimming from the idyllic white sand of Paradise Beach. There was also the option of taking Zodiacs to snorkel at the newly declared National Park of Sandy Island.
