Union Island

<Back to the Tobago Cays>    <Back to the Caribbean Page>    <On to Petit st. vincent>

Situated to the SW of Tobago Cays, Union is a mountainous island. With it's unique outline, it's easy to pick out, and it's main town, Clifton, is protected by colourful reefs.


May 23rd - We had the perfect sail over here! Steady wind from the stern, making it comfortable and fast, of course the best sails are the shortest . . . it only took 30 minutes! We  dropped our anchor in Clifton at 12:45pm, the bay here is only protected by a reef so it's very windy and rolly, plus we're a bit squashed in. I think we'll be moving on to a more sheltered and spacious bay once we're checked in. Once again there's the whole gang here, 'Itza Purla', 'Willow', and 'Coral Moon'!

May 25th - We're going to follow everyone else's example and sail round to Chatham Bay, apparently there's a lot more room there, and it's not blowing a gale!

May 27th - After a few days in a nice peaceful anchorage, we're going to leave to go furthur south. 'Willow is going to Petit St. Vincent (PSV), and it may be the last time we see them before they go back to the USA, so I think we're going to follow them, with 'Itza Purla'. 'Coral Moon' is going to Carriacou, we'll catch up with them in a couple of days.

Sail over to P.S.V. . .
