Grenada celebrates workboat tradition
Published on February 5th, 2020
With over 200 years of boat building tradition, the tri-island state of Grenada celebrated their workboat traditions at the Westerhall Rums White Jack Sailing Festival on February 1-2, 2020. Held at Grand Anse Beach on St.George’s on Grenada, this gathering of maritime heritage also offered an opportunity for the experienced seaman to pass on their knowledge to young up-and-coming sailors.
Thousands of Grenadians, and visitors to the Spice Island, watched the racing on Grand Anse Beach. With the grills fired up and the bars doing a lively trade, the crowd cheered on their favourites, and ultimately payed homage to the winners. In true Grenadian style the after party lasted long into the night.
