In Antigua (see photo above), Steve commented that “We were all alone because we left all the maxis (inlcuding one 130 foot maxi!) and three Volvo 70s (except for one) behind in our wake! It was very lonely…”, he lamented!

Steve adds that “It’s very amusing to be beating maxis, boat for boat, and we’re on a cruising boat. Can you imagine how fun that is?”
