An Optimist Sailing selected video:
We chartered the Adventure Antigua Classic Yacht for a day – January 5, 2010. It is “a 40 foot wooden classically built Carriacou Sloop”.
The day was completely awesome. Tour, snorkeling, fabulous lunch, sailing. There was some larger ocean roll this day and that was a hoot. The day couldn’t have been more perfect. Eli, Jason, and Daniel were a fabulous crew and group of people to spend a day with. I recommend this charter strongly. It is worth every penny spent. – James M. Burton
from Eli’s site(s):
“The classic design of the sailing vessel has been maintained by passionate boat builders since the design was born on the Island of Carriacou back in the 1600s. At that time Scottish boat builders were brought in by plantation owners to build very fast freight carriers to help the plantations on these small islands maintain trade with the larger islands. Believe it or not the same boats are being built using the same tradition and expertise today. Built on the beach with local wood cut from local forests by local descendants who helped build the original boats, these fast work boats can be found in small numbers across the Caribbean fishing, carrying freight, smuggling, doing charters and most particularly racing! …The Ocean Nomad [was] built in the Grenadines on the island of Carriacou being very careful to observe all traditions and designs.”
