Day 11 first Epic, Grenadines.

All our gear
About half the quiver!

For almost two years The Best Odyssey has been mostly a dream that 11 days ago became a reality with the first dive off the deck into turquoise 80 degree water and just keeps getting better. This isn’t a pitch — this is paradise found.

Day one we were kiting off the south side of Grenada within two hours of picking up everyone in the marina. Since then it’s been one mind blowing day after another. Great group of people, solid winds, awesome food, fantastic scenery- we can’t ask for more. In fact I can’t imagine more.

Today we’re the only yacht sitting snugly on the windward side of Canouan, just south of Mustique and north of the Tobago Cays. Just to windward of us is a long barrier reef, the winds are side onshore, there’s a luxury resort off our stern, we lie in about 6 feet of crystal clear water and have only ourselves to complete with for the cameras. We can choose flatwater or waves with no one but our kite and wind for company.


We were up at dawn this morning to take advantage of 20 knot winds that blew all night. Quick stop for breakfast, back out til the arms or legs give out, then I’m sure another session tonight. Clinton amazes us with his aerial maneuvers, the rest of us work on our next trick or at times give in for a cold corona and take to spectating as Clinton has more energy than the rest of us put together.

From here we’ll make a short sail to Mustique, then a final night run up to St Lucia to have a few days at Anse de Sable beach. A fine finish to an amazing journey.
