We finally did arrive at Jolly Harbour at approx. 1330 local yesterday (Wed, 12DEC)... very nice place, very nice to be on land again and see the other rally boats & crews. Unfortunately, Peter had to leg it last night already to catch his flight back to the UK - 26 days at sea and 6 hours at the destination, that's got to be some kind of a record... Very nice to meet Ralf here who will be staying with us until Sunday. Today will mostly be taken up with cleaning up and then it will take a couple of days to "decompress" - right now it still feels as if we had just arrived here after a long day sail... In any case: everyone is well, Antigua is beautiful (I forgot how nice the Caribbean can be...) and we look forward to a relaxing week at Jolly Harbour. Pictures and movies to follow later - stay tuned
Land in sight!!Markus
We raised Antigua (or a land mass that we hope to be Antigua) at 0815 local this morning and will have English Harbour abeam in one hour with an ETA at Jolly Harbour, our destination here, at 1500 local today. Another good 24 hr run with 147 nm on the log finally saved us and we hope to make happy hour tonight!
