In and around Antigua

We've really been enjoying ourselves at Antigua. The weather has been nice. The sailing has been good. The company has been delightful. The services have been excellent.

We spent a few days up island visiting Deep Bay and Jolly Harbour. One day in Deep Bay we hitched a ride into the capitol, St. John's, with the Big Red Boat in their huge fast dinghy. It was a fun day filled with lunch, beach time, shopping at the produce market, and scoring some really cheap Campari.

In Jolly Harbour we watched Madhatter's kids participate in some Laser races and enjoyed walking to Epicurean Fine Foods for provisioning. These kids had never sailed Lasers, but they did a good job out on the course.

Then Madhatter suggested a race to Redonda Island on Tuesday, so we went back to English Harbour which was closer to the start/finish.

The awards ceremony if this evening so I'll share the results later, but it was one tough race!
