The Open Ocean between Nevis and Antigua

Jun 25, 2013


Location: Underway to Antigua
Author: Jorge
We set sail the 24th around 6pm and expected to arrive at Antigua the next morning. A couple hours into the trip the main engine was turned off, giving us the opportunity to solely rely on the wind and our sails to make it to Antigua. Our watch teams tacked several times due to the unfavorable wind direction and swells, almost tripling the length of our trip but giving us some great line handling practice. The passage was quite rough and there were a few small rain storms that fresh water rinsed us all off but our chefs still managed to cook great meals down below including pizzas on bagels and pasta for dinner. We arrived to Antigua around 2 AM and dropped anchor. After a long day at sea and several boat watches, everyone was ready for a good nights sleep, looking forward to a great next day in Antigua.
