Day’s Run – 8 March, 2016

Bequia is pretty much classic Caribbean…with its funky painted houses down to fine white sand beaches and crystal clear water, which pretty much begs you to jump in.  There’s reggae music, fried chicken, fresh coconuts to drink and heaps of sailing: from little kids learning to sail in optimist dinghys to FRIENDSHIP ROSE, the most recent wooden schooner to be built on the beach here – and still going strong, now earning a living doing daysails now instead of running cargo and passengers between here and the big island of St Vincent. And of course, our own PICTON CASTLE boats: SEA NEVER DRY and MONOMOY have been out every day too, learning small boat seamanship and having a time.  There’s no big cruise ship dock here, so tourists are limited to a steady stream of yachts and a few smaller cruise ships anchoring off.  It all makes for a less hectic vibe than some of the bigger islands.
