second visit to Jolly

The first time we went into Jolly we met a smashing British couple  Stuart and Julia who have a classic yacht named Desiderata a 66ft ketch which they charter and enter the races. They had bought her and totally refitted her "Desi" for short was 40 years old and a 70 year old design a Malaba designed by John Alden fro pure speed. Take a look at more details at 

The second time we went into Jolly Stuart and Julia invited onboard for sundowners and shown around, they have to have 12 to race but manage alone for non racing, no fancy electric bits on her. Stuart and Julia are "foodies"and from what you can see on the website above their menu is pretty extensive. Another evening Stuart and Julia came aboard our "plastic" yacht for nibbles and sundowners, Stuart has lots of  sailing tales and experience to share. 

When we went into shore we saw Nychea and met up with Tony and Gill for drinks at the bar, they were so busy cleaning and preparing to be lifted.

Tony and Gill told us their plans to be hauled out in Jolly Harbour while they return home, so Antigua is one of the hurricane safe places, we always hope.
As Gill was emptying their freezer she invited us aboard for dinner doing us proud with a lovely meal, we had a lovely evening with them. All being well we will meet them on our way back next season when they return for xmas.
