Departing Marsh Harbour for Exumas
15 November 2013 | Marsh Harbour, Bahamas
The gale has passed, the Kaliks have been downed and now it's time to continue on to the Exumas. We'll spend this morning prepping the boat, then depart for Allen's Cay at noon. We have a new route, so consider this our new float plan:
ROUTE: We will sail 30nm south in the Sea of Abaco to the extreme southern cut, at Little Harbour. From there, we'll enter the Atlantic Ocean and turn SSW, sailing through the night 80nm to Nassau Harbour. We'll cross the busy harbour in the early morning making our way to Porgee Rocks. Now on the Exumas Bank, we will sail SE, following the time-honored route over Yellow Bank to Allen's Cay in the Northern Exumas. We expect to drop the hook off Allen's Cay or Leaf Cay Saturday afternoon.
Thoughout the passage, the SPOT tracker will be on. Communication with Aria will be through the Satlink email address. Thanks for following our progress!
