About the Book
The West Indies Regatta was held in St Barths in April 2009.
Beautiful traditional sail boats, from Carriacou and the Grenadines sailed up from the south, to race, and get together with friends.
It was a really joyful event, and very lovely to see the old island trading boats racing around the blue horizons. This is a small record of that event.
Boredom I have discovered is a great stimulant to writing. Travelling in a van, instead of a sail boat, there was nothing to pull on, no watch to keep, so I played with the dashboard buttons and windows until I was told off. What to do? I thought, here I am travelling, most people would wind the hind tail off a donkey to do this, so why am I going crazy. A little Zen training had happened some years before, "Notice" said the guru. "and write it down." So this is how and why I started to write. I am a complete novice, but what the heck. It is fun! If you meet me today I will want to know how your liver is working and if you use a double knot to tie your shoe laces. So beware. Life is interesting again!
