Rendezvous Bay, Antigua

Tuesday, January 15

Gene had done some searching around the GPS and charts, and noticed a beautiful remote-looking bay called Rendezvous Bay close to where we were anchored. It's very far off the main road, so we figured there are probably very few if any people that visit this beach. We decided to sail over to the bay, and take the dingy to the beach for the day.

We had some issues with our windlass when we anchored in Rendezvous. The windlass was getting power, but wasn't turning to bring the anchor chain up or down. After troubleshooting, we were able to get it working, but there was definitely still something wrong with it, so we decided to enjoy the day and diagnose the main issue later.

Rendezvous Bay was definitely more remote than the other beaches we'd seen, but there were still a few couples. We realized that there was a road where cars (most like with 4 wheel drive) could drive down to the beach. With as large as the beach was, however, it was still very easy to find a quiet piece of sand far away from the other people. We spent the day hanging out on the beach, swimming, snorkeling, and playing horseshoes. When we got back to the boat, we successfully retrieved the anchor, and headed back to Carlisle Bay to anchor for the evening.
