S/Y Happy Ours - 44 ' Island Packet. cutter -6' draft -February 2003
Subject/area: New Marina/Grenada
We have found a pleasant alternative to the hustle and
bustle of St. George’s, the sometimes uncomfortable and often crowded Prickly
Bay, and the isolated Hog Island. It is Clarkes Court Bay on the South coast of
Grenada. We had over looked this anchorage on our last visit because of a
tricky looking un-buoyed entrance. The insistence of our friends John and Deb
Gerber on Sea Witch that we needed to visit the " new marina"
compelled us to brave the entrance. To our surprise, there were uncharted red
and green buoys guiding our way in. We used our waypoint of 11 degrees, 59.26
N, 061 degrees, 43.71 W to begin our approach and just followed the buoys from
there, making it a very easy task to enter. We were delighted to find a huge,
well-protected bay with many anchoring possibilities. As we worked our way to
the back, we Spotted Sea Witch tied to a new floating dock, which had-24 large
finger slips. The waters were so calm; we were reminded of our old slip back in
beautiful Lake Stockton, an inland Lake in Missouri.
We anchored in 12 feet of water just off the marina docks
and dinked in to enjoy a sailor's reunion with our friends. They took us up to
meet Bob Blanc, the owner. We were greeted with warm welcome, cod drinks, and
were given a tour.. The slips are in the process of getting water and electricity.
A beautiful bar designed by Bob himself greets you as you step off the dock and
will probably become the focus of many social activities in this bay.
Washrooms and showers are beautiful and clean. The laundry room is in the
process and more slips are planned. Fuel, pump out, chandlery, dry storage, and
“boatel” style rooms are all in the works to make this a truly worthwhile stop.
Reasonably priced bus service is available to meet our transportation needs and
security is provided.
We were invited to move Happy Ours to one of the slips for a
couple of days and were surprised to find 11 foot water depth more than half
way in from the end of the dock.
