Detailed Track:

The last few hours we did motored sailed in order to make sure to arrive while the customs and immigration office
while still open.
Just as we were trying to figure out which building is the custom office (it has a large yellow flag)
one of the dock line that we had prepared fell in the water and inevitably rapped around the prop.
The prop was still spinning but we quickly dropped anchor and dive to cut the line and clear the prop.
Not exactly the celebratory swim I had in mind ....

Overall a nice easy transit from Oxford to Antigua. With the usual amazing transition from cold-cold weather to the
beautiful sunny and warm Caribbean weather.
