Our adventures on the high seas and other places
Water Cay - 10 March
9 March 2008, Jumentos Cays

Hope to be in Water Cay by tomorrow night

Off the air for a while
15-18 knots Easterlies for a few days
9 March 2008, Monument Beach, Georgetown

We're finally leaving Georgetown after having collected our pack from Australia with the text books and finally having a weather window in our favour. This will be our final look (we think) at the lovely Bahamas in their most natural state. The Jumentos and Ragged Islands extend south across the Great Bahama Banks and the cruising guides make it clear - take everything because there's nowhere to buy anything. Couldn't get any green tomatoes to tide us through til Cuba so I guess the tinned stuff will have to be enough. We'll need to eat any beef or chicken before going into Cuba or at least boil the chicken, as they don't allow any of it in. That's going to be tough since I hear the lobstering in the Raggeds is pretty spectacular.

Following your adventures closely and excited to read another entry! Best of luck for the next leg.

The houseboat has been on blocks at Kev's place for the last month or so. Had it transported from the ramp in the river just over 1km away. The boys have been very busy with deck repairs and fibre-glassing the roof. Painting is next. I can't wait till it's back in the water!

Happy sailing, Sue Ross & kids
28th Georgetown Sailing Regatta
Windy and lumpy but settling tonight
8 March 2008, Volleyball Beach, Stocking Island, Georgetown

Today was the start of the Regatta that many of the cruisers have been working up to over several months. With over 200 boats in the harbour and many of them having been in Georgetown for months, the Regatta has been a constant topic of discussion. Today it launched with a Coconut challenge where teams of cruisers buddied up and set out in their dinghies to compete for the largest collection of coconut. Despite the attempts of sabotage by our mates on 'Eira' and 'Sandollar' they weren't able to beat the competition but they did a fine job trying.
