Falmouth Harbor Antigua

Reef on the south side of Antigua

We motored from Jolly around the southwest corner of Antigua, into the wind, inside the reef and into the quite Carlisle Bay.

Check out the way they store these racing boats

The next day we motored straight into 18 knots of wind and on into Falmouth Harbor - thankfully a short distance.
Part of Falmouth Harbor
There are many, many yachts in here but it's a big space.  Some yachts are at one of the three marinas.   Some moored and some anchored, like us.
Local laser sailors use the anchor field as practice course - zoom zoom -very close at times
While there are a few boats smaller than s/v Honey Ryder, most are bigger.
Checking out the BIG yachts and some are really, really big yachts

More than a handful of classics around as well.  WOW!
We are perfectly happy with s/v Honey Ryder but we still like to walk the docks and see other boats to get ideas for our boat.  Plus who doesn't like to look at boat porn up close and personal when possible!
Dinghy dock in background -Rocks were tippy - not good with a sack of groceries that includes eggs
First we had to land the dinghy and get ashore.  Not always an easy task.  Sometimes it's Dinghy Jungle Gym Obstacle Course time when we come ashore.
Dinghy dock balance beam event - score 9.6 - stupid Russian judge!  HA!
