An all Gay Caribbean Adventure? Yes! He had one of the most amazing adventures of his life sailing in the Caribbean.
As you already know, Scruffy Gios partnered with Outings and Adventures this October. He flew to the Caribbean and enjoyed a Gay Sailing cruise on a windjammer for one full week… and it was simply amazing!
GAY CARIBBEAN CRUISE: OUTINGS AND ADVENTURES
What is a Windjammer
First of all… do you all know what is a windjammer (in Italian, veliero; in Spanish, velero)? In order to make sure Gios is giving the right definition (as you all know Gios is not a native English speaker), He quotes Wikipedia: ” A windjammer is a type of large sailing ship, with an iron, or for the most part, steel hull, built to carry cargo in the nineteenth and early twentieth century…. The windjammers were cargo ships designed for long voyages. They usually carried bulk cargo, such as lumber, guano, grain or ore from one continent to another, usually following the prevailing winds and circumnavigating the globe during their voyages”.
Yes, the one you see just above is Vela, the amazing windjammer he had the fantastic opportunity to sail aboard in the Caribbean! It was like magic; it was like sailing back in time!
Welcome to the Adventure
The adventure started on Friday, October 7th. Due to the long intercontinental trip, he arrived on the beautiful island of Grenada on Saturday afternoon. He flew in directly from Europe (British Airways flies directly to Grenada and Saint Lucia from London Gatwick). He was welcomed by the beautiful True Blue Bay Resort, where he met most of his fellow shipmates. Every since the first dip in the Infinity pool, Gios knew he and the other shipmates were going to have an all gay Caribbean experience of a lifetime!
Finally, hey are on the Vela!
On Sunday morning we reached port from the resort and finally got on board Vela! It was like a dream! We were 20 gay guys, most of us virgins (I am talking about sailing with Outings and Adventures…), starting a dream experience on the Caribbean Windjammer!
Welcomed by the crew
They were welcomed by a crew with snacks and drinks, which was just an appetizer of what we enjoyed throughout the week. They were pampered by the crew with incredibly great food, drinks, and attention to details! They had great breakfasts in the morning, energetic lunches at midday, rich Happy Hours with snacks and signature cocktails (Vela Colada, of course!), and luxury dinners every night on deck all under open-air and stars! Gios was impressed by the efficiency of the crew and the high quality of the organization.
Gios had the luxury of experiencing a great week in some of the most beautiful areas in the world! It was his first time in the Caribbean Gulf; it was beautiful beyond any expectations!
How they enjoyed their week?
Thanks to the amazing weather (luckily enough, they had not been touched by the hurricane or storms,) they made the most of the cruise. They swam (and snorkeled) in beautiful seas while visiting some of the most charming beaches (and bays) of the world: Sandy Island, Union Island, Tobago Cays, Les Pitons in Saint Lucia… all of them breathtaking and a pleasure to discover!
Life on the Vela
Bios had the opportunity to visit beautiful little towns along the way, such as Bequia and Saint Vincent which were full of history and charm. Above all they enjoyed the life on board of Vela! And yes, they made the most of it: jumping from the deck into crystalline waters, paddling around the ship, swimming to the closest islands, from where to trek and enjoy amazing sights all around, dancing around like crazy monkeys in the sunsets, bonding on deck while sipping drinks and playing Cards Against Humanity soon after dinner…
The Scruffy Italian had the gift of meeting a great bunch of good guys, which he now has the honor to call his friends! Yes, this amazing Gay Caribbean Cruise gave him the opportunity to meet with like minded people. There were so many memories that will stay with him forever! And so many new friends!
Sailing in the Gay Caribbean with Outings and Adventures was such a treat! Do you want to discover more? Drop Scruffy Gios an email with all your questions! He will be happy to persuade you to join Outings and Adventures next big trip!
