It was a great opportunity for the first three arriving boats to reunite and discuss their passages.

With their Atlantic crossings behind them, the crews then turned their attention to exploring Martinique. Lucie Baudin, director of the Marin tourism board, answered the sailors’ many questions about touring Martinique, the upcoming Martinique Carnaval, diving, transportation, and planning visits for family members who will fly in to vacation with the crews.

Yanessa Jean-Elie and Miguel Nisas of the Tourist Board were also on hand. Yanessa served planteur punch and local foods, and Miguel served as DJ, serving up music from Martinique.
