Carriacou Sailing Regatta

A long weekend of sailing activities brought various racers from numerous islands together for an annual regatta off the beaches in Hillsborough and Tyrell Bay. Local boats as well as foreign cruising boats all participated for a long weekend of sun, sea, salt and beer!

Getting ready

 

Blackberry is the boat but don’t see any mobile phones from Canada around

strategizing

Sleeping it off till the next race

Want to go sailing on my yacht?

Dinner at Bogos Roundhouse

A sailor’s gathering at a rather expensive restaurant. But what isn’t expensive in the Caribbean? At least when we finally get to North America we’ll think it’s cheap.

Great dinner prepared by what is known as one of the best chefs in the Caribbean. And all in an incredible setting.

And on to Grenada

Arrived in time for Carnival. Lots of music and colour much of which we are going to see on Monday 0430hrs to 1200noon. Apparently a parade where masses of thrown paint, chocolate and whatever else is around is scattered over the participants. Businesses have boarded up their storefronts along the route. We’ll see what’s happening.

Main harbour is St. George’s

Last night went to the cricket stadium to see Panorama which is supposed to be the final competition of the pan bands. We waited three hours for the event to start which it never did! The bands had assembled outside the stadium and were practising but never got to perform? Have no idea what happened.

More later.
