Starfish At Powel Cay

27 October 2008
About a week ago I took shelter at another uninhabited island called Powell Cay. It has beautiful beaches where we discovered many of these large bright colored starfish. About 2 miles across the sea of Abaco from Powell lies the settlement of Cooperstown. I tried to go there to spend the night but it was so windy and wavy that it would have been unsafe, not to mention uncomfortable, to anchor on that lee shore. After Powel the weather kept getting steadily worse. I've been quite amazed at how many days the weather can be rough in the Bahamas, a place that most people think of as calm and idyllic. I'm sure it can be that, but some years are different than others. When it comes to cruising in sailboats you have to take the bad with the good. I've had cruising adventures where the weather was perfect the entire time and now I've had adventures where the weather was mostly rough. All part of growing as a sailor.
