Like Jamaica, Barbados was at the time an important commercial colony to Britain, with a major sugar cane industry built on slave labour.   It is a non-volcanic coral island, extremely popular with tourists and cricketers.   As the easternmost Caribbean island, it still has particular maritime significance, for example as the finishing point in trans-Atlantic rowing contests.
