08 April 2012 | Nassau Bahamas
Ok......a little more time now to actually think about the last week. We motor sailed the majority of the way to Rodriguez Key, where we anchored to prepare for the morning crossing of the Gulf Stream. Quite uneventful, we motored across smooth seas. Anchored at Gun Cay, SE. Again, easy peasy. Gary, Bob and I swam and snorkeled a bit in beautiful, clear water. Weighed anchored at 0330, or actually woke to a dragging anchor! No harm done, we took off and motored to Chub Key. Anchored and had a great dinner, chili dogs! Next up, Nassau. Hoisted the anchor at 0530 and headed for Nassau. WOW! Wind and seas climbed steadily as we sailed.......pretty steady 25 knots, gust to 30, and seas 5-7. Very sloppy, and we've learned that we are no experts when it comes to stowing gear! We did manage to sail most of the day, double reefed. Bob L and Gary have been great crew, and we were all very happy to pull into Nassau Harbor Yacht Club.
