I love the Abacos!warm southern winds
03/27/2011, Green Turtle Cay
We've had a wonderful two weeks back in the Abacos sailing north, south, east and west, exploring new shores, catching lots of fish and lobsters, enjoying new and old friends, and relaxing in the best weather we have ever had in the Bahamas! The restaurants are excellent, the local folks are friendly and kind, the facilities are excellent and safe, and given that everything that could break on our boat already has, there is nothing much left to repair and a PILE of broken bits that need to be hauled back to Ottawa to be refurbished before we return. I'll be bringing back the watermaker, raw water generator pump, electric toilet, main engine impeller, Garmin GPS, Globalstar phone, etc.
Back to familiar groundsCooler and north winds
03/12/2011, Marsh Harbour
A great sail north from Lynyard Cay in 20 knots to arrive at a very busy harbour with 60+ boats on anchor. Laundry, shopping, fresh conch salad, a busy potluck dinner at the Jib Room with other cruisers, and we're planning a fancy dinner tonight with friends arriving from Treasure Cay.... smoked duck, duck confit, and smoked salmon. Louise has been making marmalade with all the sour oranges we found in Eleuthera, so we'll be all ready for next year.
Back in the Abacos!East winds at 15-20 knots
03/09/2011, Lynyard Cay
We left Egg Island at 6am with 10-12 knots of wind from the NE, with the expectation that the wind would swing east and waves of 5-6 feet.
