Not that many people from Hampshire living out there !
That is only a few miles away. I have sailed there on KATE a couple times.

Hmmmm, I was privileged to see Kate being built on Rawlins Plantation and then sailing in St Maarten Regatta a couple of years later.

How's 'Sunshine' doing on that neighbouring island; those Killer Bees are something else!

Happy days indeed.

Better to spend it on rum in Antigua.

Make sure that you visit English Harbour.
We were there last year at Galley Bay and this year going back to the same resort. We visited the English Harbour and yes best use the cash on more rum but all inclusive mean also all rum included

Mr Caines aka 'Sunshine' is doing fine. He did change the recipe for Killer Bees a few years ago to make it less lethal.

Hay Doug, we have two things in common 1. I`m new to this forum too and 2. I used to live in the Caribbean (Grand Cayman) I would have loved to have had a rib while I lived out there as I used to do loads of diving. Kitts looked more interesting than Cayman as it is a little flat and not very big 16 miles long 1 mile wide. I still think the Caribbean is hard to beat but i do have my own paradise here in the UK ....Cornwall. Welcome and all the very best (easy on the Tortuga rum ) :-)
