About this title:

Synopsis: This guide picks up where The Cruising Guide to the Southern Leeward Islands ends, and covers the islands of Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Grenada. Revised and updated for 2017-2018, this guide features detailed sketch charts based on the author's own surveys, and aerial photos of most anchorages. It also includes clear and concise navigational information. By far the most popular guide to the area, it covers the islands from Martinique to Grenada with dazzling scenic photography, unsurpassed onshore information, sections on exploring, provisioning, water sports, services, restaurants and photography. Information is linked to the author's website where you can download town maps, GPS waypoints from the sketch charts, and obtain links to local weather, news and more. Now includes a free 17.5 x 21.5 inch color waterproof planning chart of the Windward Islands!

About the Author:

Chris Doyle's cruising guides are among the most popular in the Eastern Caribbean. Chris attributes this to listening to his customers when they tell him what they would like to see in a guide, and following their ideas when it makes sense. In this way his guides have always been highly innovative, leading the way in color sketch charts, then computerized color sketch charts, GPS waypoints, star charts and a guide-linked website where people can find corrections, download town maps, download GPS waypoints, access navigational advisories, and get links to down island businesses.

Chris was born in England, but as soon as he was finished with college he set sail in an old Colin Archer called Sugar Creek, sailed south until the butter melted, turned right and ended up in Grenada, where he became a resident, and has been so ever since.

To make ends meet, he built and rented a house, day-chartered, skippered yachts, and undertook deliveries. One of these nearly turned out badly on an older 38 foot yacht when the rudder shaft sheered some 50 miles west of Saba. However, the owner had some tools on board, and Chris and owner and his party managed to steer the boat for three days by balancing the sails and during that time managed to construct a temporary external rudder, so they could arrive under their own steam. Just as well, as the yacht in question was fitted with one of the early VHF radios, which had not yet arrived down-island, so there was no way to call for help.

Chris built his dream boat a few years ago in Trinidad, a 40 foot catamaran called Ti Kanot. He spends well over half the year on board, visiting all the anchorages he has to update, and is well-known in the islands where he is also a yachting correspondent for Caribbean Compass, and he also writes for the international yachting press when asked.

For part of the summer he travels, usually to Vermont where he stays with his life-partner Virginia Barlow.
