Sail into soca season with Xaymaca
Deck the ship with 'wuk up' bodies. 'Tis the season to be jolly, in soca of course. With carnival season already in full swing, socaphiles have their fair share of party options to choose from. So, if last Saturday, you didn't set sail into soca with the highly anticipated Xaymaca International's Cooler Cruise, you missed out on a great partying experience.
UDC car park in Ocean Boulevard, on the waterfront, was the docking spot for the main event. And with high hopes of sailing out into the harbour by 6 p.m., Patrons came out in fine fashion, with cooler on deck, just for the occasion.
As the sun left the skies, giving way to the moonlight, partygoers filled cups with their choice of mixed intoxication, and settled on board the Treasure Queen.
Captains Nuchporic (Patrick and Ryan) DJ Richie Ras and DJ Franco took three floors on a musical journey through their tour of the harbour. With all hands on deck passengers escaped their worries and, having no apologies for their behaviour, surrendered to the sound of soca.
Now what's a ship without a little suspense? When a yacht pulled up alongside the Treasure Queen, many waited on bated breath to see who was missing in action. Turned out it was our very own track legend Usain Bolt. Leave it up to the fastest man alive to make a grand entrance.
Wining on strangers and acquaintances, those in attendance gave new meaning to "What happens on the ship, stays on the ship". If the cooler cruise was that incredible, imagine all the excitement which will unfold at Xaymaca International's Carnival 2017.
