The RORC Transatlantic Race will finish off the tropical paradise of Grenada, where competitors may take advantage of 48 hours of free berthing at the Camper & Nicholsons' Port Louis Marina.
Grenada is actually a tri-island state and composed of several smaller islands, including Carriacou and Petite Martinique, in addition to the main island of the same name. Known collectively as the 'Island of Spice' they are one of the world's largest exporters of nutmeg and mace, spices which were introduced in 1843 by traders while the island was part of the British colonies.
With volcanic origins Grenada is a remarkably fertile environment and enjoys a luscious rainforest interior with cascading waterfalls and mountainous regions, alongside the Caribbean staples of blue water and sandy beaches. There is plenty to see and do on the island, from trekking through the rainforest to coastal watersports.
