Current Location: Falmouth Bay Anchorage, Antigua
Miles Traveled: 9
Weather: Mostly sunny, occasional brief showers, breezy (10-20), low-80s
Highlights: Terry pulled the port starter battery out of the engine compartment first thing this morning and went into Budget Marine for a replacement while Amy picked up a few provisions. Half a BOAT later ($504), and about 30 minutes of labor, we had a new battery installed and were ready to head around the island to Falmouth Harbour. Wind and waves are forecasted to pick up over the next few days, and we want to spend a few days visiting English and Falmouth Harbour areas, so off we went. Had the genoa up for first half of the trip, then it was motoring directly into 15-knot headwinds as we came around the south side of Antigua, but waves were mild and the trip was very pleasant. Arrived in Falmouth Harbour around 11:30, dropping anchor in the NE corner of the harbor. Cell phone coverage is very sporadic, but idyllic location otherwise. Dennis and Deb picked us up around 5:30 to go into town, and we wandered the streets a bit before enjoying a very nice dinner at Le Cap Horn restaurant.
