Wednesday, December 14th
Finally on Wi-Fi. We are at anchor in English Harbour, Antigua. Arrived late morning, Sunday, December 11th. Celebratory champagne! The last couple of days gave us pleasant sailing. Check in with Customs went smoothly, thanks to eSeaClear system which I filed ahead of time.
Altair and the crew are catching up on rest. We’ve been relaxing, cleaning, and doing a little exploring. During our first trip to shore for lunch I tripped on the sidewalk and strained or pulled a ligament in my ankle. I have an air brace and walking is no problem. Air brace will be replaced by a ski boot soon!
Kem left us yesterday to fly home to NJ. He is a fantastic sailor and excellent crew member. We hope he will be back to join us for another leg.
There are a lot of Oysters here. The Oyster next to us in the anchorage is from Germany. They are also doing the Oyster World Rally (OWR). This will be their second time! Looking forward to seeing all the fleet arrive and meeting the other crews.
We will be moving over to Catamaran Marina next week. Altair will be there for a while over Christmas.
