Sailor relaunches wider, improved ‘Bequia Pride’
Paget Farm was in a celebratory mood on Sunday as scores of residents came out to witness the re-launch of the boat and to comment on its performance after being modified.
Hazell, 60, who is preparing for a regatta in Carriacou early August, told SEARCHLIGHT he believes the sailboat will perform better now that it is 9 feet 3 inches wide.
The 3-year-old sailboat has participated in nine regattas and has won two trophies in Canouan and another in Carriacou.
“Itâs a good, competitive boat,â a smiling Hazell told SEARCHLIGHT.
“We always place high,â he further said.
