Green Island, Antigua 12th Feb 2011

We've just travelled a few hours up the coast to Green Island just off the coast of Antigua. Pretty lumpy sail up here with some squalls coming through and a small swell running head on too.
The Zenith Ocean Voyages cat The Meercat is achored litterally right next to the spot although we will be launching off the back of the yacht anyway.
The kite spot here is a real small stretch of sand but once launched there is a huge bay of flat clear blue cystal water to play on. The wind is a little light at the moment (15knots) but there are still about 4-5 people out playing.
There is a school here that operates here and wow what a place to run a school. All the teaching is done from the ribs following the students....very nice.

This place is truly amazing,it simply does not look real as the colours are just so bright. The "Meercat " Cat is a fantastic boat for this kind of kitesurf holiday with planty of living space and also huge areas for storage of kite kit etc
