Vanishing Sail (Carriacou/Antigua)

ttff15_feature 2_vanishing sail

Vanishing Sail tells the story of Alwayn Enoe, one of the last remaining boat builders in Carriacou, an island long renowned for the craftsmanship of its sailboats. Once again, there’s a bigger-picture story at work, and that is the death of trading by sail โ€” once the main source of livelihood for men on this small island near Grenada in the Grenadines โ€” all across the Caribbean. Beautifully shot, Vanishing Sail offers a glimpse into a disappearing Caribbean ideal.
