Sailed the Mandalay with Windjammer Barefoot Cruises over 30 years ago and decided it is time to return to Bequia for a lobster pizza at Mac's. (Captain, please take us to Bequia but not on a Wednesday as Mac's is closed.) Anyone joining us (besides our good friends from the Bay Area)?

Well, I know it's 6 months out but thought I'd bump this to the top in case others have decided to join us. cocktail

You are going to sooooo enjoy sailing Diamant!!
We're sailing Vela in December, but I do love the sleek and saucy Diamant!

No one else has booked? I know David & Luba are onboard & a third cabin was booked. Who are our shipmates? Inquiring minds want to know! Hi

Hi Steve,

Hey, as you may have noticed there has been a decided change in the way people communicate these days. You are more likely to find out your future shipmates were silently tracking the comings and goings on Facebook -- most people are less open about sharing times when they will be away from home -- and many IWJ guests are first-time sailors who are unfamiliar with the sometimes intense camaraderie that develops among tall ship fans. They are, like you were, invited to join all of us here on Sea Shanty and on Facebook to share the days leading up to their vacation cruise. Of course, we recognize that this is a terrific resource for getting those most mundane questions answered, as well a a great way to pre-meet your future cruisemates ... it's just that they don't "get it" until after they've been out and sailed.

Give 'em time ...

Saucy

That's about it!
We sailed, we were hooked. And I enjoy the Sea Shanty, even if many just lurk! cycle guy

I was rather hoping that people would be posting their experiences here. Several friends want to follow our voyage, and I have found the best way to do that is through a Google blog. Thus, in preparation of our adventure I have created a new blog. You can view it here. http://lobsterpizzainparadise.blogspot.com Nothing will be posted until we start the trip, but I have posted an intro to the why's of this.

Check back the end of November and follow the fun. Hi

Steve W.

We arrive in Grenada one week from today! Any suggestions for lunch at Victory Bar prior to boarding Diamant? Thought we'd arrive there around 11 for a leisurely lunch prior to 12:30 boarding. ' cocktail cocktail

I usually get an order of Nachos (to share as it is huge) and a Carib on tap! OR you can go to the bakery just inside the entrance to Port Louis for their Friday grilled burgers with all the fixings! Quite good. Plus buy some of the ginger cookies as they are the best!!! Fix your burger and take it back to the picnic tables outside the Victory Bar, and get a Carib from the bar. Sit back and relax before pre-boarding!
