red mangrove that once stood at maiden island, antigua. several months after i took this photo, these plants were ripped up by the new owner. Alan Stanford decided that this exact position would be the place where his heavy machinery would come ashore from barges. He ripped up the plants both above and below the waterline and proposed to spend US $95 million making his home there. That was years ago and nothing was ever finished. he's is in jail now in the usa.
the last day this boat will ever race. Later this day a fire damaged this amazing racing machine beyond repair. She only raced two days in antigua sailing week 2011.
