Rolly night last night, the wind picked up and the surge started sneeking around the reef.
But this morning we pull out and discover a small rage between Jamaica and the next cays, about 7 miles. The seas are 10-12 just behind the beam! The wind is at 15-20 out of the southeast. Needless to say it was an adrenlin boost. But what a ride, we were surfing down ito the troughs and then not be able to see over the next wave!!!!!!!!!!
We make it across into the next lee, but the winds have remained the same. So we sailed at about 8 knts all day. I do like the new sails, we have had to start the engine for refrig and power chareing!

Hog is nice but we have decided to start back to Georgetown. The plan is to head north wit a stop at Buena Vista for lunch and a swim then spend the night in Jamaica Cay. Then head for Water Cay, then head for Georgetown.
Buena has the prettiest beach we have ever seen. We anchor within 60ft from the beach. Diane is now been turned on to Sea Beans http://www.seabean.com/what.htm , so the hunt is on!
We have a very nice sail up to Jamaica, 10-15 out of the east southeast. With the new sails we have been able to make 65% of wind speed pretty well average!!!!!!!
Double Breasted is gorgeous and the holding is good. And is home for a few days. We were 53 miles from Cuba, an easy day sail away! .
All the folks at Double were extremely kind. New friends were made quickly at the welcome party. Kokomo, Next Exit, Feral Cat, Magic, Party of Two, Seaquel, and Allez Cat were the attendees. Boat cards were exchanged, lies told and fun was had by all. Hopefully contact will not be lost. Another day, another anchorage, we will surely cross paths again.
The weather stays out of the east and light so we decide to visit Duncan Town, then anchor here at Hog Cay.
