Fine with Showers
Cathleen aboard 14th Dec, and guests arrive 22nd. We sail south out of Jolly Hr, anchor off a beach for the night, then visit Cades Reef for snorkelling and spend the next night anchored off Carlisle Bay, near English Harbour.

Then we spend Christmas on Nelsons Dock in English Harbour. I purchase half and half with my guests a "Hot Dog" towing toy, which is great fun for them all whizzing around behind the dinghy.

Then we beat up against the rough Trade Winds to Green Island and we are greatly lucky to find the mooring buoy in Tenpound Bay free and we have the pretty and protected bay to ourselves, with great snorkelling around!

Next we pick up a buoy to the East of Green Island, situated behind a reef with views out into the Atlantic. We watch the Kite Surfers having fun in the bay!

27th we return to Jolly Harbour to collect the yachts new documents, and weather goes rainy so we stay for a couple of nights.

30th Dec we sial up to Jumby Bay on Long Island to the north of Antigua, which is a millionaires resort, and the security said we couldn't walk above the high water mark! But pretty and protected and good swimming area.

Then for New Years we pick up a park buoy off Great Bird Island another remote and attractive spot.

1st Jan we return to Jolly Harbour to re-stock and a night in port.

2nd we sail to Carlisle Bay again which is great for swimming and snorkelling, and the next day we go around to Falmouth where the guests enjoy an evening in the local restaurant next to the super yachts.

Then back to Carlisle Bay where we see sting rays, a Remora (which almost tries to attach to my tummy!), an octopus and some cuttle fish etc!

On the 5th we return to Jolly Hr my guests depart for their home in Canada.
