We are in Montserrat after a boisterous sail over yesterday.  We didn't leave Antigua until after 11 in the morning so wanted to hurry to check in with customs before they closed and we had to pay overtime.  The winds co-operated blowing 18 - 22 knots and the boat took off averaging about 6.5 knots.  There were 2 1/2 meter seas so a roily fast ride was had and we cleared customs with 15 minutes to spare. At the moment we are in the Montserrat Public Library checking our mail. It is very hilly here, we hope to take an island tour in the next few days and see the remains of the exploded volcano, it blew it's top in 1995.
