A few impressions from the trip to Antigua
We flew back to Bermuda on Nov 18, stowed away the frozen meals we had prepared in Nahant, picked up sails and vang at the local sail loft and got started preparing Tioga for a longer offshore trip.
We left Bermuda Nov 19, had a perfect reach all the way and arrived in St Martin Thanksgiving day (Nov 25) just in time to celebrate the day (and end to a great trip) with a very tasty meal that Peter Davis had prepared for us in Nahant.
From there we went on to Marigot, St Barth’s and Barbuda before arriving in Antigua.
