Anguilla and the EC8
The EC8 (Eastern Caribbean Bank) program consists of four coins minted each year on behalf of each of the eight Caribbean island members that comprise the ECCB - Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. The ECCB is the official issuer of the Eastern Caribbean Dollar, the currency of the EC8 coin program since it began in 2018.
The Battle of Anguilla
As inspiration for today's sailing regattas, Anguilla history points to "The Battle of Anguilla," which was a conflict at the height of the Napoleonic Wars. It involved roughly 400 French colonists of St. Martin aboard two frigates that attacked Anguilla and the Anguillian defense forces responded. At one point, a sailboat was sent to get aid for the besieged islanders and managed to find the HMS Lapwing, which came to the rescue. Today, Anguilla hosts regular sailboat races for locally built and designed boats.
