This is the first notable report we've had since the Freewinds changed it's itinerary from the usual Aurba-Curacao-Bonaire run to Barbados-St.Lucia-St.Vincent in December.

The Freewinds, which last visited this country in 2004, will be making a return call this today, Jan. 10, according to the Department of Culture.

The ship. with close to 300 passengers, will spend the day in Port Kingstown and will host a goodwill and friendship concert on board from 7 p.m. The concert will feature international pop star Aliona and the Freewinds Band.

The ship was originally scheduled to visit and hold a special concert on Dec. 23 as part of the Christmas festivities but cancelled due to adverse sailing conditions, which affected docking in Kingstown.

During its earlier visits, the Freewinds hosted a number of concerts and movie nights on board the ship for the public.

The ship’s band also played a number of concerts at several secondary schools across the country and made appearances at SVG Blues Fest.

Since its departure, the ship has maintained contact with this country by making available “The Way to Happiness” DVDs, booklets, teacher manuals and posters to the Department of Culture. These have been distributed to various schools, youth and community groups.

Government officials are hoping that the Freewinds will return with more regular calls, the Department said

The event will begin at 7.00 pm and will feature international pop star Aliona and the Freewinds Band. The ship was originally schedule to visit and hold a special concert on December 23rd as part of the Christmas festivities but had to cancel due to adverse sailing conditions which affected docking in Kingstown.

Note that in this article from April 2010, Archbishop of Castries, Robert Rivas, talking about St.Lucia, said that the Freewinds had previously been banned from St.Vincent. Don't know of any other supporting dox on that.....
