Nelson’s Dockyard, Antigua
Day 4

Nelson’s Dockyard and Antigua’s south coast

From St Barts, turn south-east and head for Antigua. This is going to take a few hours, so settle down somewhere with a good book as the inky blue Caribbean Sea slips beneath your yacht.

You should be approaching Antigua shortly after lunch, and if at all possible you should try and moor up in Nelson’s Dockyard, a stunningly picturesque and historical location. If you can’t get in there, Falmouth Harbour in the next bay along has fantastic facilities for superyachts.

Spend the afternoon exploring Nelson’s Dockyard on foot, and maybe take a walk out to Fort Berkeley with its fantastic views out to sea and back over Galleon Beach English Harbour. In the evening, sit out on deck with a large rum cocktail and enjoy the Calypso music drifting down from the nightly party up on Shirley’s Heights.
