Sailing Conditions in St Vincent

Sailing Conditions in St Vincent & the Grenadines are World-renowned – reaching up and down the islands in 20-knot trade winds is as good as you will find anywhere. Generally, winds during the winter months tend to be more northeast 15 – 25 knots and summer months 10 – 20 knots from the south-east.

Seas are normally around 5 – 7 feet in winter months and 3 – 5 feet in the summer.

Temperatures vary little during the year with highs of 28 C, 82 F between December and March and 31 C 88 F in the summer months. Dry season extends from Jan – May, but even in the “rainy season” the weather in the Grenadines is normally very sunny with only brief showers during the day. Being so far south the islands are very rarely affected by storms during the hurricane season.

Thanks to these wonderful sailing conditions and temperatures, a St Vincent sailing vacation makes perfect sense for couples, family or friends.
