Done with Antigua for this time.

Leaving Falmouth Harbour, Antigua

Today we cleared out of Antigua.  Our plans are to leave about 5:00 a.m. tomorrow morning for the 45 mile passage to Deshaies, Guadeloupe.  We have reservations at a marina in Point’a’Pitre starting Monday.  This marina is directly adjacent to the Amel factory service office and we want the boat checked out.  We don’t know of anything wrong but would like several gel coat chips repaired with the correct factory colors and also have a few small things on the boat looked at. 

We took a couple of photos today of two mega-yachts that we saw here in Falmouth Harbour.  One was a huge sailboat leaving the harbor and the other is an enormous motor yacht that is docked at the Falmouth Harbour Marina.  This boat has every toy imaginable on her.  Click on the photo below and check it out.

We walked around a bit this afternoon sightseeing; visited Nelson’s Dockyard once again; bought lots of the freshest locally grown vegetables; returned to the boat and got everything ready for an early start tomorrow morning.

We have enjoyed our week in Antigua but are ready to move onward.

Note May 28, 2013:  We ran into that same enormous blue motor yacht with all the toys, including the approximately 50-ft sailboat, in Marmaris Turkey in 2011.  

Sorry, no photos yet.  Will eventually try to get around to adding the old photos from the previous website.
