The [re] Launch of TRADITION
Last week we sailed Genesis back to Windward in order to attend the [re] launch of Tradition a 50' Carriacou Sloop that is now owned by Frank Pearce of Antigua. He had spent the last 3 months in & out of Windward overseeing the work necessary to bring her up to a traditional state again. After being rigged as an auxiliary island trader for many years Frank will soon sail her to Antigua rigged as a gaff cutter. Here she will join the 6 resident Carriacou Sloops and prepare for Antigua Classics 2009 and the inaugural West Indies Regatta in St. Barth's.
