Antigua - 4 March

Mon 6 Mar 2006 21:27

It was a sail of around 75 miles from Isles des Saintes to Antigua, which took around 12 hours.  On the way we saw a pod of whales, and got quite close to one which we thought was a fin whale.  It was about the same size as Keoma (14 metres!) 
They are not easy to photograph!
We also passed within 20 miles of Montserrat, its volcano smoking away.
The sea was a flat calm - the first time we have seen this for months, in fact we have not seen this since we were in the early part of our Atlantic crossing.
We arrived in Falmouth Harbour, Antigua at around 6.30pm, by which time it was dark.  We had to anchor five times before we got a hold.
