1 Sailing into St. George’s, Grenada

Imagine how different this coastline appeared on August 15, 1498, when Christopher Columbus sailed by during his third voyage to the New World. He named his discovery La Concepción. A year later, Alonso de Ojeda – a Spanish conquistador and Columbus competitor – traveled by here. He called the island Mayo. The name continued to evolve by the Spanish in the 1520s (Granada), by the French in 1652 (La Grenade) and finally by the British in 1763 (Grenada). Now, as you are sailing into this picturesque Caribbean island, you decide the appropriate superlative(s) to call it.
