Leeward or Windard competition

February 5th, 2009 · 2 Comments

So we have been sailing here for 6 weeks and got used to the grouping of the southern islands as the Windward Islands (Martinique, St Lucia, St Vincent, Grenada) and the northern islands as the leewards (Dominica, Guadeloupe, Antigua etc).

We are in the North East trade winds. How are the northern islands to leeward of the southern islands? I wasn’t convinced by what I got on the first pass with google. Many thanks to Catherine from Falbala for getting onto thinking about this one!

Normal rules – prizes not yet announced and we are the sole arbiters of who is correct!
