Jolly Harbour marina Zanshin I at the docks in Jolly Harbour Marina in Antigua. I've just completed getting her set up again after summer storage and am ready to go.

Today has been spent in preparations for departure; which if all goes well is going to be tomorrow. I think I will go to St. Barths or Saba via an overnight stop in Nevis. If the ocean swells subside to around 1 meter instead of the current 2+ then I want to visit Saba, unfortunately the anchorages there are not great due to being open to the sea and exposed to the typical Atlantic swell. I shouldn't have put the dinghy together and put on the outboard, as I reversed the procedure today in order to prepare for the passages and that Tohatsu outboard is pretty ungainly to carry around.
Nigel from Oboe threw a sun downer party for a couple of his friends and dock neighbors that was a lot of fun. I even dressed up for it by putting on a shirt with a collar and long pants!
