Why we love Antigua and Barbuda so much

 Our crew left ten days ago and ever since we've been busy. We managed to get the broken rail repaired and we brought torn genoa to sail maker for repair. There is a number of things we did ourselves - we did the laundry, cleaned the boat, reorganized all the food that was left from the passage and moved it to more accessible places. We also disassembled the engine control panel and find out that the buzzer is dead (that's why it didn't make any sound when starting or stopping the engine), we figured out why the SSB radio didn't work - antenna had bad contact inside the radio - it's fixed now and it works great, we cleaned the water maker filters, we did full maintenance on front head, and we mend the bimini by sawing together the broken zipper.

And in between we had some fun - swimming, enjoying the nature in Nonsuch bay, ... Yesterday the weather was calm and we were feeling brave, so we sailed from Bird island in Nonsuch bay towards the north through the Spithead channel, then entered the Boone channel on the north side of the Antigua through the Horse shoe reef channel and then sailed to Jolly harbor and entered it between third and fourth island of Five islands group. All went well, although we found that none of the charts - neither Garmin nor Navionics or paper charts - are completely accurate and good eyeball navigation is very much needed for such adventure.

Why we love Antigua and Barbuda so much? See for yourself ...
