This is What You Came For : Antigua Sail Week Part I (MJ Sailing – EP 71)

This week’s episode has it all: sailing, racing, parties, friends, and of course, beautiful surroundings!

Still nestled in Falmouth Harbour of Antigua, we pick up just after our snorkeling excursion when we stop by to say hello to our friends and crew for Antigua Sail Week, Liz and Jamel. We get talked into a crew dinner of fish tacos aboard their boat that night, but not before exploring Nelson’s Dockyard.

The festivities for Race Week kick off with the Neon Party at Nelson’s Dockyard, where everyone is invited to wear neon clothing under the black lights, and enjoy free drinks with English Harbour Rum.

When the races kick off two mornings later, Team Lister Marine is ready to go, with the addition of a local youth sailor, bringing our crew up to 5 people. We have a great race day, and learn where we need work. The next morning we go back to a crew of 4 and really get in our groove. On race day 3 we smash the competition in our Club Class and come in 2nd place….with only 10 seconds keeping us from first!

Of course we celebrate this success heavily, and luckily our friend Hugo (The Sailing Frenchman) is around to handle the camera for us as we go on stage and accept our prize. Stay tuned for next week’s episode and our finish to race week!

With love from Antigua!

Thank you SO MUCH to our Patrons. These amazing supporters help keep us on the boat, our camera equipment up to date, and the videos coming. Without our patrons, these videos would not be possible.

Thank you!,
Matt & Jessica
