Having made way steadily overnight we awoke this morning to see Antigua just ahead of us. We arrived into English Harbour around 8.45am and after the usual clearance with customs and immigration, shore leave was granted. Many went off to explore the island, whilst others had a lazy day wandering around Nelsons Dockyard before going down to the beach. There was quite a gathering in Cloggy’s bar watching the Holland/Argentina game and from there some of us went to the yacht club to take part in the quiz that Clare had organised – although not the winners we all had a good evening and our thanks go to Clare and her fellow members for inviting us.
