Earlier this year I fell in love. In love with those wooden boats, I encountered on the beach in Carriacou, Grenada. I was determined to go to Windward Carriacou, where the boats are being built, after seeing the movie Vanishing Sails at the Grenada Sailing Week. So I went. I ended up staying two months. Later, I was lucky enough to sail up one of the beauties for the West Indies Regatta in St. Barts where Carriacou sloops are united for a weekend of fun, adventure, and replicating the trading past. Pure Bliss. We must make sure these boats with souls won’t vanish. To keep traditional alive. And dreams alive.

Are you in?

Building a green Sailing Boat

My dream is to (re)build a wooden Carriacou sailing sloop.

As sustainable, eco friendly as possible. With the mission to make a positive impact for the ocean and the world.

A Movement

That’s the start. I envision this sloop to be part of something way bigger than ‘just’ one boat. It’ll be part of movement of reviving the old ways of trading, community living, and being in nature. Together.

I’m working on the big master plan.

No way I can or want to do this alone. I’m looking for people and parties that like to join the movement. Contact me and join the Ocean Nomad Community as a start.
