Looking to make new friends - Antigua for Caribbean 600 Start

My wife and I have been (largely) lurking on this forum for many years. Avid sailors that haven't quite yet made the leap to liveaboard status but manage to find enough weekends over the summer to average about 2000 nm/year in New England waters aboard Scappare, our Catalina 42 . Being trapped in New get my winter fix i'm one of the crazies that frostbites all winter...nothing like sailing 150 races over the winter to keep sharp for the summer race season!

Anyway, being the sailors that we are we're taking our winter vacation this year to Antigua (Nonsuch Bay) to do some beach lounging and dingy sailing. However, my wife observed that purely by coincidence we will be there for the start of the Race around the Caribbean. We're going to head out to watch the festivities but i thought i'd take a flyer and see if any of the members here are planning on being a spectator boat and wouldn't mind a bit of company as its always better to be on the water.

I can both offer to buy the beer (or whatever your preferred libation) and also possibly return the favor if your planning on being in Newport, RI for the Volvo Ocean Race (there is a good chance Scappare will be a stake boat for the inshore race and the start of the offshore prime viewing real estate!)

PM me if your interested...always great to meet fellow sailors!

Dave & Rachel
