The Volvo Open 70, True North, arrived in Bequia today, ready to take out the Bequia Youth Sailors and a number of other Bequia groups and dignitaries on sailing trips tomorrow.
The yacht is here to promote Dubai as the hosting city of the Expo2020 and this is its 2nd stop in a round-the-world promotional tour.
The yacht which is over 5m across its beam came into the Bequia Marina this morning, squeezing into place alongside a couple of other similar sized yachts.
The yacht and crew are here in Bequia for a couple of days enjoying the views across the bay and the trade-winds for some great sailing. For them its their first time to Bequia and the Grenadines, and they were keen to explore this gorgeous island.
