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
. 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. Falmouth
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
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.
