Where Are the Windward Islands?

Today the church prays for the diocese of the Windward Island, West Indies. Do you know where the Windward Islands are? I’m familiar with the term, but I never knew which islands they were:

IInterestingly, if you just type in Windward Islands, and not West Indies, you get this:

That could be confusing, like if you were one of the early explorers and traveling with a group of ships and the leader said “If we get separated, we’ll all rendezvous at the Windward Islands” and then one ship might end up at one island and one ship at another  . . .

 

Or there is always the possibility that Windward Islands isn’t specific, but something that designates where serious winds hit first . . .
