Again a short trip today. The winds did switch to the west then the North West. The squalls were upon us last night around 2100 hrs. Got some strong winds but basically no problems and very little rain.
We make the short sail down to Stanial Cay. Another good sail with no engines running. Chet on "Allez Cat" and I both agree it has been some of the best sailing weather we have seen in many years.
The current blasting through the cut shoots us through and we anchor near the yacht club. "So Fine 2" and "Wiwaxy" are both anchored near by so we are back with our Canadian buddies.
The supply boat came in today so a trip to the store is planned for some provisions then, we will get water tomorrow on the way out!!!!!!!!!!

It is another beautiful day today. We have decided to make the short trip down to Bell Island. It is only 15 miles; the wind is on the nose but only at 5-10.
We tuck into the bay east of Bell Island with "Allez Cat"; it will give us the protection we need for the strong westerly winds predicted.
There is some very nice snorkeling along the rocks out in the cut. We have a real nice time beach combing and swimming.
We spent two nights at Highborne Cay. It was a beautiful anchorage with good snorkeling and a nice beach. "Allez Cat" ask us over for snacks, and "So Fine 2" joined us. It was a good evening.
This morning we are headed for Wardwick Wells (Exuma Park). It is pretty and the winds are still out of the NE at 15-20 and a following sea. We made a average speed of 6.5.
Naturally we missed the mooring ball the first time, and the big boy fell on his ass trying to grab it. It was not pretty, but I bet it was entertaining to the other boats!!!!!!!!
Chris Parker has called for shitty weather so we will stay here for a night or two.
