Wordless Wednesday | Sailboat Racing At Black Point Settlement, Bahamas



 
Wordless Wednesday is supposed to be about posting a photo(s) without any words. But, I'm a rule breaker, so here are a few words:

1 - These guys would zip around racing each other in the evenings when we were anchored at Black Point settlement on Great Guana Cay in the Exumas.

2 - It was like having dinner and a show. Scott would grill something for our dinner and we'd eat it in the cockpit while we watched the racing.

3 - Scott really wanted to join in the fun. I thought it looked like fun too, until I saw how easily they capsized.

   
What words does this picture(s) bring to your mind when you look at it?

  2. I would capsized all the time. I'm a powerboat kind of gal, not a sailing kind of gal. I know very little about a sailboat.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ☺

  4. Those local races are fun to watch! We did it a few times (watch, not participate) in Carriacou, Grenada. The local sailors are so fast and skilled! And... not scared at all.

    1. It looks like a great way to learn how to sail. Wish I had done it when I was a kid.

    2. I guess! Wish I could have been there. Oh, and tomorrow I'm posting more of the artwork from drummer Emerson Barrett of Palaye Royale after reading your kind comment. Be well!

  8. I think if you're in for the thrill, even the capsizing is worth it. ^_^

    1. I think you're right - capsizing is to be expected from time to time when you do that kind of racing.
