Martha’s Vineyard Photo Diary {TYW + Jack Wills}

Introducing Martha’s Vineyard…

Do you remember that totally off-the-scale-never-going-to-be-forgotten week i had last summer in Croatia as I sailed around the islands off the Dalmatian Coast with 70 other boats and 300 other incredible human beings whilst hopping between epic venues and parties?

aka The Yacht Week.

If you don’t remember, read this post first and then come back here.
Seriously, if you don’t know about the Yacht Week, it’s high time you educated yourself.
The indescribable magic that resides in every Yacht Week event was captured and projected by three of my friends {the masterminds that work behind TYW, TSW and Jack Wills} into a new experience called…

The Island Invitational’.

The first edition of The Island Invitational was exactly what I was here in the US to witness – a Guest List only event, hosted in and around two gorgeous little islands just off the coast of New York in Massachusetts –  Martha’s Vineyard + Nantucket.
These islands are undeniably exclusive and host some of the most beautiful summer houses i’ve ever set eyes upon. If I were to say that President Obama and The Kardashians are no strangers to this land – it’d give you a pretty good idea as to the wealth that lines the coast of these islands.

The Island Invitational hits Martha’s Vineyard…

Our first day on the island has us meander around Edgartown before dipping into The Seafood Shanty where we cooled of with an Iced Coffee as we overlooked the bay.
The real fun began around midday when the event commenced and we hopped aboard a 90 year old {incredibly beautiful} tall ship for a day of sailing, Cisco cocktails and new friendships.
Beautiful humans from all over EC America that have spent their summers growing up on the island itself, joined together for a day of sunshine, good vibes and locally sourced tipples.
As the sky turned to twilight the deck was transformed into a haven of fairy lights, white table cloths and lobsters and we all engaged in conversation over fresh seafood whilst Tom Wardle serenaded us  deep into the evening.
We continued on to a bar on the island where a few shapes were most definitely thrown and bonds between old friends became stronger and stronger.
 To be surrounded by people who see the world in the same light as you do, by people who share the same passion for the ocean {and good cocktails} like you do – is magic.
This day was pure magic.

As the sun rose…

and after the most epic ‘Green Monster’ Breakfast at The Black Dog Tavern {see the banging menu here},  ‘The Island Invitational’ moved onto the next island, Nantucket, where the magic continued beyond anything I could have imagined…

{Stay tuned for my Nantucket Photo Diary!}

Thank you Riley, Red + Rach for inviting me along to engage with such wonderful human beings {like yourself} + for bringing to life such a fine tuned dream.

Love as always + happy adventuring,
