A HUGE THANK YOU TO EVERYONE for your support, together you have raised $45K in less than 5 weeks - we are now SO close to reaching our goal!

While we have been busy with this campaign, an award winning photographer & film maker has been covering some important Caribbean regattas for Vanishing Sail. Onne van der Wal, Canon Explorer of Light has just returned from the Bahamas Family Island Regatta which has an important link with Carriacou that will be explored in our film.

Here is a short teaser of his work for us - with thanks, Alexis
