Two days before the shooting in English Harbour (see report here) our catamaran ENDLESS was attacked by 3 black men in the early morning hours at our anchorage in Moscito Cove, in front of Jolly Harbour.

One of them managed to slip into the cabin, where we had a short and hard fist fight. Somehow we got him out of the cabin again. Trying to push him into the water he pointed a gun at us. Luckily we could close the hatch again, put on the outside spots and called for help, so they left.

Please inform other yachts, to take great care in Antigua!!
