Location: Falmouth Harbour, Antigua
Who would have thought you could tack this much in one day? Typically on Argo, we set the sails as we depart a port and don’t have to tack or jibe for a few hundred miles. Today though we probably changed tacks at least a half dozen times, as we searched for the wind direction that would guide us towards the finish line. Even with the lack of wind, the race today was highly competitive, as we spent the majority of the day neck and neck with another boat in our class. In the end, we crossed the finish line in fourth place. To top off our day, we had a beach BBQ, where Grill Master Al, cooked us burgers over coals buried in the sand. Now how could this day have been any better?
