Stopped for the night
27 April 2012 | Mayaguana, Bahamas
We left Provo at 6:45 a.m., crossed the Caicos Bank toward West Caicos and headed toward Mayaguana. It is possible to check in there by we arrived too late anyway. So, up went the Q flag and we settled in for the night. We were anchored inside a big reef that runs along the island. We had to pick our way in and throw down the anchor in a sandy spot. Before it got dark we saw another boat anchored off to our right. We had a nice sail over - 59 miles with a beam wind about 15 knts. Our plan is to get up early again and head for the north cape of Long Island, round the cape and anchor. It's 170 miles so we'll be doing another overnighter. Weather looks good so off we go!!
