The last day of Classics was devoted to gig racing and the participants were encouraged to dress up in period costume.
It clearly did not matter to this group that met to exercise every morning in Falmouth,
We dropped over the side of the dink and swam to the wreck which, for some strange reason, was paying host to a swarm of small jellyfish, the densest swarm I have ever seen. Inplaces it was almost solid jelly fish. The good news was that they did not seem to sting. I looked in vain for lobsters and lionfish but both were absent.
St Johns was a quiet with only a single small cruise ship at the docks which sometimes plays host to five monsters. So we had the sights to ourselves.
and the Anglican church and graveyard. The church had some serious structural issues and it was good to see repair work proceeding.
We had a great sail back round to Jolly Harbor touching 8 knots with just the head sail past the rock that looks just like a hawksbill turtle's head. We walked up to the head overlooking Jolly Harbor and saw another mongoose the second in a week and only my fourth in two and a half years. Again we were too slow with the cameras.
Good sunset though.
Next on the agenda was the last day of Antigua race week and we got to watch the smaller boats beating upwind as we motored back to Falmouth.
The pics all show sunny days in Antigua but at this moment in time I am writing this with the computer running on battery and all it's outside stuff disconnected because we have a thunderstorm raging overhead and the threat of a strike is real. I am glad the we do not have a skyscraper mast tall enough to warrant a low flying aircraft warning red light. A couple of strikes were very close by and some boat might well have been hit.
