The Antigua Sailing Week Beach Bash

In the end The Antigua Sailing Week Beach Bash was a very well organized party with an excellent variety of music up and down the beach that wasn't as loud as i thought it was going to be. My wife and I enjoyed listening to Wadadli Riders just up the beach from Itchy Feet. Daddy-O-Grande came and jammed with the Riders for a while which was pretty cool. We had gone down to the party on our boat "Xtreme" with some friends including the island distributer for Veuve Clicquot. Needless to say, that our boat was very well stocked!!!
For a change the party seemed organized and I have to say that I was impressed with the way things turned out. The weather wasn't so sunny, but it didn't rain until we were getting off the boat in Jolly Harbour sometime around 8 pm.
The Antigua Sailing Week website showed this good video of some of the top racers:

Today they are in Jolly Harbour and the bands are playing already. The fleet is smaller than usual which is a shame because I think this one is better than the race weeks we have seen in recent past.
