A reasonably early start for the 30 miles back to Antigua. The biggest disappointment was that the wind had come round to the SE and so we were beating back in rather lumpy seas. This meant that the fishing that Steve and James had looked forward to, having prepared the line with the horrid pink lure kindly donated by Rob from Serafina, was not really a very attractive proposition.
We arrived in Dickenson Bay in the North West corner of Antigua in time for a late lunch.We found a suitable spot and dropped the anchor, much to the annoyance of half a dozen idiots on jetskis who then spent the next ten minutes coming as close to us as possible, probably in the hope that we would go away. We knew, however, that their time would soon be up, so we bided and time and sure enough they soon went away.
We took the rib ashore and stopped for a beer on the beach before going for a walk along the lovely sandy beach. We found a very nice bar/restaurant and decided to stay for supper and to watch the sun go down.
