Half Way to Bimini
Scott
06/12/2010, 24 27.5'N:79 45.0W



As we decided to leave Miami at around 1 AM, we still had to get into deep water, which is a little nerve racking at night. So by the time we hit deep water it was 2 AM. Since there were some newer sailors on the boat, and some big thunderstorms and some big, short chop, we decided to take the night watch in pairs, and do two, 3 hour watches. I took first "sleep." Which never works well as captain. I really did not sleep at all; waiting for the inevitable call for help, which never came.

So as my watch started, I had been up for over 24 hours, with only 4 hours sleep the night before. So it goes when you have to fly east across 3 time zones.

Getting ready to sail from Kay Largo to the Bahamas. We are departing around midnight so that we can arrive in Bimini when it is still light. Just playing it safe.
