Susan Chaplin paddles her way into Oualie Beach folk lore

Published on Sun, 10/04/2009 - 18:05


A very fit and brave lady, Susan Chaplin,  recently captured the hearts and minds of the staff and patrons at Oualie Beach Resort. This adventurous, very buff  64 year old  hails from  California and  has been singlehandedly paddling along the Caribbean Island Chain on her surfboard! Her latest jaunt was from Montserrat  to Nevis via the uninhabited island of Redonda.  She left Montserrat at 2.00am and arrived in Nevis a mere 12 hours later. “ I paddle 100 strokes lying down and then 100 strokes kneeling” says Susan.  Her sister, Holly and niece, Diana  stayed  at Oualie Beach to act as her welcome committee.On Thursday she launched her frail craft from the calm cove at Oualie Beach for a short paddle over to Frigate Bay in St Kitts. She then plans to aim for Statia and then Saba. When I asked  her why she responded, “Because I still can!”.  Her son Elli, who follows her nervously by traveling between islands the way you and I do,  says,” I think (hope?) that this will be her last major open ocean crossing” Elli was obviously really enjoying Nevis and was very reluctant to leave. We directed him to our Nevis Real Estate website  in case his Mom wants to retire here where she now has friends and can paddle around happily without any dangerous open ocean crossings!

We at Oualie Beach wish her safe passage, and are enriched by her visit to our little Nevis Hotel
