One foot on the ground
We flew back from Anguilla via St Martin and arrived back at our boat we had left in English Harbour to find Bill Bailey, our new bosun, had already arrived. Apart from some excellent provisions including several fruit cakes, spice mixes, tomato puree and boxes of wine, he was full of good spirit and ready for an exciting sail.
After exploring the boat show in English Harbour, which brings together some of the largest sailing boats in the world, we made a plan that would take us to Barbuda, with a mutual 'get out' option along the way if it was too much for us.
We did it. Over the last five days, we travelled to Barbuda and back to Antigua, covering over one hundred and twenty miles under sail. We discovered some of the finest beaches in the world, completely off grid. The stars and moon were extraordinarily bright. And we lived like royalty in the kitchen. This short video tells the story of our quest for lobster.
