Island Where article by Joanne C. Hillhouse

Recently I had a wonderful visit from a gifted writer. Joanne C. Hillhouse had asked to do an interview for a new Caribbean magazine published in St. Lucia called Island Where. The resulting article can be viewed here and gives an indication of the content & style of Carriacou Sloops Vol I & II. Meanwhile news form Windward, Carriacou is that the launching of Ocean Nomad in time to compete in the April Antigua Classics is now a strong possibility. The project has been taken over by the Antigua entrepreneur Eli Fuller and will go into charter service at his eco tour company Adventure Antigua. With the arrival of Peter deSavary's new 40ft sloop recently launched in Petite Martinique to challenge the 5 resident Carriacou Sloops in Antigua as well as the Carriacou Schooner Jambalaya this event promises to deliver some excellent racing.
