BAYWATCH MEETS ANTIGUA CLASSICS IN A CLOUD OF PINKFriday 16th April 2010
Delighted onlookers at the Antigua Yacht Club Marina were treated to a piece of classic entertainment as Carriacou Sloop Pink Lady attempted to leave the harbour and found their propeller caught in a rope earlier today.
Two of the pink bikini clad crew (to match their pink hull) immediately dived overboard to assess the damage, with Katherine Gilbert then re-creating a Baywatch moment as she swam with speed to the marina, hauled herself out, sprinted (in said Pink bikini) back to the dock with a very sharp, shiny carving knife and mask and snorkel and stepped back on board as the sloop had drifted back to the marina. Meanwhile a helpful man had stripped down and dived in David Hasslehof stylee to assist. Admist gufaws of laughter, blonde wigs and lots of pink, the girls set sail ready to catch up with the rest of their class and were looking for some serious competition. Katherine you lit up a lot of people's mornings running with such grace and style across the marina.
Check out the photo gallery of the Baywatch moment along with photos of the buzzing dock this morning.
Carriacou Sloop Pink Lady has sailed up from the Palm Island Resort in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The privat e island has been voted 'One of the Best places to Stay in the world' by Travel and Leisure,one among many accolades forf this gorgrous resort.
