Before I get into to many facts about Antigua, here is a personal one. More readers have responded to me via a comment or message how much they love Antigua. Not a nay anywhere to be found. I’ll throw this one in also, when they say your lost luggage will show the next day… it will. That is amazing to me here in the, “what ever man”, that the Caribbean is famous for. Though I packed enough meds in my carry on like a scout, relief flooded when the whole stash, clothes included showed up to my suite set up at the Inn at English Harbour delivered. It shows a side the islands never have to me before, they care.
I’m here to cover the 2012 Antigua Sailing Week, an event that started in 1967 with just 10 boats. That has developed into an event that often has 200 sailboats now, from all over the world. English Harbour is stuffed to the gills with some amazing ships including one from Virgin, kick ass babe in the skies. Already Antigua has me hooked like a fat marlin, and halfway landed. This place has a great feel and I want more. Does life get any better than a suitcase delivered and saucy sirens of the sea cutting waves under picture perfect skies? My job is to find out, so far so perfect. Whoops late for the huge free concert in the Harbour, back to work.
