Day Three WOA

23 April 2010 | Falmouth Harbor, Antigua
A lingering weak front is dropping rain
That's day three without Alice; she's in Aruba visiting with her sisters. It's a good opportunity for me to finally get off my duff and do some boat projects.

Today is the start of Antigua Race Week and boats have been arriving daily. The winds are very light today for the feeder race from Guadaloupe, no records this year...

Tonight is a Mount Gay Red Hat Party which gives everyone a chance to meet and start their story telling. The stories will change undoubtably as the week goes on as the, would-of, could-of, should-ofs manifest on the race course. I'll be trying to get aboard a boat but if not I'll hike up the mountain again to watch from on high. It's pretty quite here at the Antigua Yacht Club since much of the regatta action is over at the DockYard in English Harbor.

For those of you who haven't been here before the two harbors are very close to each other, just a short walk from Falmouth harbor to English harbor. The Dockyards are a very special and historic place. The British built some six forts around the perimeter to keep out the French. Many of the buildings have been restored helping visitors experience the days of old. Falmouth Harbor is much bigger with plenty of room to anchor.

There's some progress on the insurance front which just might allow us to store LB here in Antigua, let's hope.

Alice and I have spent considerable time together on the water; cruising and racing on the waters of New England, the Caribbean and Lake Michigan.

Sailing is our passion and together we've been fortunate to experience the thrills, the camaraderie and the enjoyment boating provides. [...]

We seek the freedom, excitement and challenges of voyaging.

Lucky Bird's Photos - Main
This is our second journey south to the Caribbean. This time we've chosen to exit Lake Michigan and proceed south through the in-land waterway system to Mobile. We'll start around Labor Day and take our time exploring the history of middle America.
