The Petite Calivigny Yacht Club (PCYC) introduced a new event on Father’s Day this year – a boat raft-up and barbecue at Glover Island.
If you’ve never heard of Glover Island you’re in good company, because despite its close proximity to Grenada, few people have ever been there. But this small uninhabited islet holds an interesting piece of Grenada’s history as it was home to a Norwegian whaling station until 1925 and ruins still exist there today.
Guests made their way to Glover Island on boats that ranged from small RIBs to large catamarans. Sailing School Grenada joined in on the action as well and made Glover their ‘Sunday Fun Race’ destination. Once rafted up, everyone had the opportunity to relax both in and out of the water. Snorkelling and noodle floats were popular activities for some; others found a shady spot to chat with friends and partake of the bar and barbecue. Overall the day’s event was great fun and a big success with seven boats rafted up and close to 50 guests.
The PCYC would like to thank Le Phare Bleu Marina for providing their tugboat Calico, which served as the central point of the raft-up and home base for the bar and barbecue. Jane Royce and her cooking crew also deserve a huge round of applause for putting together a feast of delicious barbecue items and sides.
If this kind of fun sounds like your kind of thing, then now’s the perfect time to join the PCYC because they’re offering HALF PRICE on new membership fees until the end of this year. For more information on upcoming club events and membership, visit: www.pcycgrenada.com
