Where in the World is the Jamestown Press?


Jake and Marnie Jacobsen (back row, center) of Jamestown took the Jamestown Press along recently as they sailed their 60-foot sailboat, Avalanche, from Jamestown to Antigua. This trip marked the twelfth time the couple has made the trip with a varied crew of friends. This year, they were joined by friends Chris Adams of Newport (front right), who works for Conanicut Marine; Kim Hapgood (back left) of Newport, a program director for Sail Newport; Peter Vaiciulis (back right) of Westport, N.Y., who has made 16 trips with the couple and Leo Bontiff (front left) of Antigua, who has made six trips. This photo was taken in the Atlantic Ocean, about 270 miles north of Antigua.
