Grenada Caribbean Sailing and Fishing Events in 2022

Grenada is launching a series of sailing and regatta events from December 2021, including the Atlantic Rally for ARC cruisers + Transatlantic Rally 2021 which just ended, until February 2022.

With its white sand beaches, mountainous topography and tropical rainforests, Grenada, the Caribbean Spice Island, is recognized worldwide as a major draw for boating, yachting and fishing events. Grenada has eight world-renowned marinas in the many bays and coves of this tropical paradise. Grenada’s location provides a secure anchorage and mooring for visiting yachts and charters during hurricane season, making insurance less expensive compared to other destinations.

Grenada’s main port, St. George, is a picturesque horseshoe-shaped bay where sea enthusiasts can cruise for above and below water excursions. The island’s pristine blue waters and colorful corals make the destination a snorkeling and scuba diving draw. More recently, Granada’s iconic Underwater Sculpture Park, innovatively designed to act like a coral reef, has been refurbished, providing an even more astonishing experience to see diverse marine life. The island hopping between the sister islands Carriacou and Petite Martinique is also a key attraction.
