West Indies Boatbuilding Culture comes to the South Coast of the UK!

1 August 2017

For one night ONLY, August 6 @ 6pm Portsmouth Historic Dockyard Auditorium will resonate with the sound of caulking mallets on a wooden hull taking shape on a beach in Carriacou, the Land of Reefs...

On the island of Carriacou in the West Indies, the last wooden sailboat builder dreams of saving a great tradition passed down the generations from Scottish settlers that sailed there centuries ago.

"A fascinating story of personal perserverance, ribald tales of smuggling at sea and the completion of the beautiful wooden sloop in a race against time to enter the thrilling Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta."

This Special Presentation with post screening Q&A with the Filmmakers is part of our outreach to introduce the film to Boatbuilding Academies, Yacht Clubs & Maritime Heritage Institutions, Caribbean and coastal communities in the UK.

Screening time: Sunday 6 August 6pm, Presented +  Q&A with Filmmakers Alexis Andrews & Justin Sihera.
Venue Address:  Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, Auditorium, No.6 Boathouse PO1 3LJ
