Board the catamaran in the North of Antigua near the airport and set sail for the kite spots in the sheltered windward lagoon. Conditions are flat, especially by Green island and the colors are spectacular. This lagoon is so big that there’s plenty of opportunity for downwinders. In the evenings we either stay in the lagoon of sail off to another part of the island for some entertainment.
After a few days in Antigua we make the 4 hour sail over to Barbuda for a change of rhythm. The kitespots in Barbuda are out of this world. Long white sand beaches linned with palms are set against a turquoise mirror flat sea. Security is assured in this offshore spot by our auxiliary tender. Barbuda has one interesting village worth visiting but we are often too tired to make the walk after spending the day kiting and snorkelling on the coral reef.
