We moved within dingy range of Nassau, anchored off of Royal Nassau Yacht Club. Then after two days of grocery runs, it is time for the flotilla to move on.
We head out of the harbor, with a course for Bond's Cay in the Berry Islands. The winds are predicted to build to 15-20 out of the northeast. And the seas are 4-6 feet, which equals a quick and exhilarating ride.
We averaged over 7.5 knts for the trip over to the cut south of Bond Cay. It is a bit shallow for "So Fine Two", so Chet meets them at the cut and guides them through the shallow water to the anchorage.

The Berry Islands are close together, so we have the liberty of traveling with the tides. This greatly reduces the anxiety for "So Fine 2", as they have a 4.5' draft!
Today we move up to Little Harbor for dinner at Flo's Conch Bar. We are anchored a mile or so north of Flo's, so it is a bit of a dingy ride. And then a moon light guided trip home. No one else sees the flashing jellyfish, but Diane and I really enjoy watching the florescence as we stir them up in our wake.
A very nice anchorage here!!!!!!!

Well we have done the Georgetown Shuffle for three weeks. You go from one side of the harbor to the other for relief from the 20-30 knt winds, and the boredom of not going any where for three weeks.
Our good friend Susie arrived on the 23 of March and we showed her the sights of G-Town. This included Sand Dollar Beach, Kidd's Cove, Lake Victoria, and Red Shanks. She met all our new friends and made some her self. But it is time to move on!
The wind has dropped down to 15-20 and the seas have laid down a bit so we are heading around through Hog Cay Cut and then proceed around the south side of Great Exuma. We have never been there so it is a new adventure.
Hog Cay Cut is no problem as we hit it at mid tide and don't see less than 5 feet. We turn west raise the head sail and have a nice down wind sail and head for Cook Point Lagoon.
