cherie writes: There are friends, and there are acquaintances. Then there are the friends that you can spend two weeks on a boat with.

Conversations on a boat are like no other. After a difficult race, sailors ponder deep questions like: “If you kill your brain cells, does that mean you loose weight?”

Friends who sail together are like no other friends. If you can sail together under stressful conditions of a rough passage, under the screaming of intense racing and under the frustration of broken marine parts—this is a true and special type of friendship.

On a boat, you have no personal space. What do you do? Climb the mast for some alone time? Surprisingly (not really), after over two weeks in Antigua, my friends and I are all still on speaking terms.

To know your friends is to love them for who they are and who they aren’t. To really know your friends, is to live on a boat with them. I can say this: I know my friends, and I wouldn’t trade them for the world.

212--Antigua: Sailing Week Parties and Awards
@ CherieSpotting     May 14 2004 - 02:50 PST
And the winner is...CARNIVAL.  You never forget a lady in red.  Or a guy (for that matter.)

cherie writes: Some came to Antigua for the sailing. Others came for the parties. The crew of Carnival came for both. One week of intense sailing on one week of insane parties.

On the final night, we got all gussied up and attended Lord Nelson's Ball where we were awarded with too many trophies and not enough champagne.

cherie writes: Antigua, one of the Leeward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean, was the sight for the Granddaddy of Caribbean Racing—the 37th Annual Antigua Sailing Week. Antigua is 14 miles long by 11 miles wide and is proud of its 365 beaches. “One beach for each day of the year,” the islands tourist brochures boast.

But Newport sailors didn’t travel to Antigua to lounge on the secluded beaches. They went to compete in what is considered by Chairman Andrew Michelin as “one of the top three sailing regattas in the world.”
