Action Bequia Fundraising Auction 2018 - Saturday February 17


19 _______________________________________________ 14 DAY SAIL ON WEST INDIES SLOOP “EXODUS” Maximum 6 people, includes ‘lunch and booze’, “Exodus” T-shirt for each guest, a DVD copy of Alexis Andrews’ award-winning documentary “Vanishing Sail”, plus sparkling conversation from owners Mikey Wilkie and Nicola Cornwell Guide Price: US$ 800 - 1200 Donated and sold to benefit the work of Action Bequia Exodus is a classic West Indies sloop, designed and built by master Carriacou boat-builder Alwyn Enoe using only traditional materials and techniques. Enoe is one of the few boat-builders still practising a skill that was first brought to Carriacou by Scottish settlers in the late 18 th and early 19 th centuries, and from whom he is descended. With wooden boat-building a dying art in the Grenadines, the construction of Exodus represented a significant milestone for Enoe - one last sloop built in the hope that that his sons would continue his lifelong trade. The captivating film “Vanishing Sail” documents Exodus’ construction and Alwyn’s progress and despair over three long years - from cutting and hauling white cedar trees out of the forest to a final traditional launching ceremony on the bayside at Windward. The film also explores the centuries-old tradition of wooden boat-building and inter-island trading for which all the Grenadines, and Bequia in particular, is renowned. Exodus now proudly calls Bequia her home. As a piece of living history, she is lovingly maintained by skilled Bequia craftsmen, continuing a noble tradition passed down to through the generations. Not available to charter, this Exodus day sail - which can be taken at any time by arrangement - represents a unique opportunity to experience the thrill of sailing in one of these iconic traditional wooden vessels.
