On our way to nevis

After, much preparation we are ready to power down to the Nevis Fishing Tournament later today. There seems to be about 4 or 5 boats from Antigua going down and our Arawak Odyssey will be the last to leave Jolly Harbour as its doing the Eco Tour today.
Just exactly as has been saying for the last week, the winds have picked up and its gonna be a rough weekend for the Adventure Antigua fishing team.
Its only a one day tournament so after we clear in customs and immigration, we will have a good sleep before leaving port in Nevis in the dark tomorrow morning. We are looking for big wahoo fish which will mostly be taken by The Four Seasons Hotel there after the tournament. One of our crew "cousin Ross" is seen here with a decent wahoo caught earlier in the week:

Oh boy the winds outside are blowing! There are one or two of the crew who will be popping sea sick pills later today. Anyway, we could use the chum tomorrow. (just kidding) I hope they are not sick out there between Nevis and Barbuda which is where we hope to be catching the big ones. Wish us luck. I will give a report when i get back on sunday or monday. Have a good weekend.
