Sailing on Someone Else's Boat

This past weekend was a holiday weekend here in Grenada which meant all the locals came out to play.  Lucky for us - our friend Danny brought his boat out to play in.  Savvy is a beautiful classic; a 40 ft wooden Petite Martinique sloop with a huge cockpit and an open deck plan perfect for packing a picnic, grabbing a bunch of friends, and enjoying the beauty of the shore and sea.  We set out on a last minute sunset cruise on Saturday night and enjoyed some wine and snacks and then set out for a full day of sailing and liming (remember?  the local phrase for hanging out) on Sunday aboard this beautiful sloop. We set out for Hog Island but a large squall deterred us so we anchored right off the most pristine and popular Grand Anse Beach.  Swimming, talking, snacking and napping was the order for the day.  We met some wonderful people and had a fabulous time...on someone else's boat!

Gotta say, it feels good not to have to be in charge!

Do you guys know Mike and Rebecca on Zero to Cruising? They're over at Hog Island. You should meet them if you haven't already. I think you'd get along well.
