Justin Sihera, the producer of 'Vanishing Sail' has kindly agreed to show this film, followed by a short question and answer session on Saturday 3 February 2018 at Lover Village Hall, and Tom Cunliffe will be introducing the evening..
This excellent film documents the building, on the beach, of a traditional Caribbean Carriacou to race at the Antigua Classics. As well as demonstrating the skills of the islanders in building a boat by eye with only the basic of tools, it is a fascinating insight into the social conditions the islanders face. The film includes spectacular footage of the racing at the Classics and a great soundtrack.
Those of you who have attended our events here previously know it's a great way to spend a cold winter's evening catching up with your fellow gaffers.
