Sandy Ground, Road Bay Anguilla, British West Indies
About the Vendor
Tradition was hand-crafted, in 1978, on the beach in Carriacou, Grenada. Built for sail trading through the Caribbean, she worked the trade winds, carrying cargo – including contraband from St. Barthelemy where the smuggling trade in alcohol and cigarettes thrived until as recently as the 1990’s.
Instead of island trading, Tradition is now living in semi-retirement in Anguilla and now sails to capture the romance of a Caribbean past.
She will also capture your heart.
As you feel the wooden deck beneath your feet, you are instantly connected to West Indian maritime days of old. You think of the past, of the men who built her, who worked on her, who loved her.
