We are currently in Nassau anchored at the east end of the harbor. We had to leave our friends Lou and Donna and make our way east. The crossing of the banks were extremely nice with virtually no seas and winds at 10 knts. out of the south. It always amazes me when I get on the banks, 70 miles of crystal clear water and never gets deeper than 15-20 feet deep. But you can see the bottom clearly and sometimes for the first time since Florida!!!
We spent the night at NW Shoals tucked in behind the shoal and bedded down for the night!
On Monday we made our way across the Tongue of the Ocean to Nassau. The weather called for winds 15-20 from the SSW with seas running 3-5. So a good sail day for the crossing. Well as usual the forecast was a bit off. The wind never clocked around to the SW and stayed at a steady 20-25 knts. Needless to say it was one hell of a ride across. We saw a pretty steady 6-8 ft. sea just off the bow. One actually broke over the windward side, not a problem, except that is where Diane was sitting!!!!!!!!!! She learned quickly not to sit windward side!!!!!!!!! But it was a fun ride and we made 7-8 Knt average speed with a reef in so all in all a good day. Oh yeah we lost two small, (10-15 lbs.) dolphins, got them up to the boat and basically let them throw the hook as we have a freezer full of fish already!
