Local artist and sailor Art Paine will give a Zoom talk about the Bahamas’ famous Out Islands Regatta on Tuesday, March 9, 2021 at 7pm. This event began in 1954 as a race between the Bahamas’ rustic fishing and freight sailing vessels. In that year over 40 rough-built wooden sailboats showed up and competed for cash prizes. The Out Islands Regatta has been running ever since, at the end of Lent and before the beginning of the crawfishing season. Nowadays upwards of seventy boats show up, and doings afloat and ashore are extremely colorful and fun! No matter how frosty the weather in mid February, you’ll be warmed by images of vibrant color, and stories of Caribbean Island hi-jinx. This is considered among marine artists the most beautiful sailing event in the world. To receive the Zoom link, please call 244-3798 or register online at: https://forms.gle/upUMxD3WJFxMvHvU8
The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is one of the European Union’s smallest countries (just forty miles north to south and twenty miles east to west); yet it is remarkably diverse with its capital of Luxembourg City and other towns in the south; contrasted by the mostly agricultural middle and the heavily wooded and rugged terrain of the Ardennes Forest in the north. It is surrounded by Germany on the east, Belgium on the north and west, and France in the south.
Luxembourg has the most walking trails and paths per capita of any EU nation.
