Starboard to Stargazing
After a fabulous sail on a starboard tack from Carriacou to Chatham Bay, we are in the perfect spot for some stargazing.
There are only a few beach bars here, so it is wonderfully dark. And with the help of the Night Sky App, we can lie on Nemo’s deck and look at all the stars, constellations and planets around us.
After a lovely dinner, we often shine our torch into the water too.
It is amazing how active sea life is at night. We have seen huge numbers of fish, squid and even rays. The best nature ‘TV’ channel you will ever watch!
When we sail south from Carriacou to Grenada, we often get the chance to fit in a sunset sail.
We like to get a mooring ball at Sandy Island and then just before sunset we head around to Tyrell Bay, giving us the perfect end to the day. What’s not to like about this sunset!
Once anchored, we pop ashore to one of the best restaurants on the island – The Slipway Restaurant, for a delicious dinner.
Sailing at night with a full moon is magical. Okay, you may not see many stars, but the phosphorescence you usually get to see instead, as Nemo slips through the waves, is so worth it.
And we love the magical influence the moon has on our planet, one that you definitely get to feel a lot more when you are on a boat.
A lot of people celebrate the full moon, and one of the best celebrations we have been to is is the Full Moon Party in Trellis Bay in the BVI. They are loads of fun for everyone, with BBQs, live music, and Fireballs, like this one made by Aragorn’s Studio.
It’s a full moon today – 5th June @ 3:12 PM ET! In June the moon is known as the Full Strawberry Moon, the Rose Moon, the Hot Moon, and the Mead Moon. Enjoy, and let us know if you get to see it tomorrow!
