crossings

26 January 2016 | Jolly harbor, Antigua
Twas the night before crossing and all through the boat, I was busy checking weather reports to see if the next day would be naughty or nice. All of the reports stated that the early morning would be naughty but the entire afternoon would be nice.

With that information in hand we left Nevis at 7:00 and headed towards Antigua. The moon was just setting as we left the bay in Nevis. By 9:00 the wind was a steady 25knots. At 10:00 the winds had risen to 30 knots and the sea was getting really angry and nasty. Soon the gust were up to 35 knots and the bow of the boat was continually crashing below the water overtime it hit a wave. The waves were flying over the boat and smashing into the dodger. It was definitely naughty.
“OK” I say, “it is only going to last another hour or two and then it should calm right down to nothing. Five hours later at 3:00 the winds finally stated to die down. We arrived in Antigua in time to drop the anchor and watch the sun set. We were tired and ready to crash. A quick dinner and we were done for.
The next day we woke up to this beautiful island paradise. We checked into customs, immigration, and port of authority and 1 1/2 hours later we were free to start exploring the island. So far, friendly locals, good food, fairly cheap beer and a lot of other cruisers spending time here and checking it out. All this is making for a very good time. I will be here for a couple of weeks and then head down to Guadeloupe.
