Leander safely in to English Harbor, Antigua

Sima, Paul, Aylin, and Alexander at the dock in English Harbor, Antigua.

Leander is at the dock at English Harbor, Antigua.  We tied up at 6:30, ten minutes after sunset and about twenty minutes before darkness set it.

We are exhausted and exhilarated.  The kids walked up and down the dock, marveling at its steadiness.  Aylin, in fact, didn’t quite get it, and at times fell to all fours and looked up grinning, as if to say, “Hey, it doesn’t move!”

In case you were wondering if our kids would be sailors, Alexander said, “Hey, when we get back to Boston, we won’t go sailing any more, right?”  “No,” admonished Aylin, addressing Alexander with a furrowed brow.  “When we get home, we’ll live in a  house.”

We sailed another 60 miles since our log post earlier today, for a total of 3001 miles sailed.  And ZERO to go!

We’ll get some pictures up soon.  But, goodness, it’s really nice to be in.  And hats off to our sturdy boat, and its rigging, electronics, and engine, completing the trip without any major problems.  Now the crew will sleep.
