The tradition of building sailboats goes back centuries in Anguilla, and is indelibly linked with this tiny, arid, seaward-looking island’s history of struggle and survival. Today Anguillans celebrate their love of the sea and sailing with enthralling, fiercely competitive sailboat races. Nuttin Bafflin—the term means no bad winds are ahead—is not only the fascinating story of the famed Anguilla sailboat, but also the story of the resilience, creativity and determination of a people.
