Autumn Borne Cruising

CSY-44 Antigua - Hull 001

Tag team event - NOW on mooring - Treasure Cay

02 March 2018 | Mooring at Treasure Cay
Dean -- Hunkered down - SUNNY
Friday 2 March 2018 -- Treasure CAY (hunkered down for WIND Storms)
Yesterday morning (Thursday) we worked a beautiful TAG-TEAM event… Autumn Borne was in a slip at Treasure Cay…(slip L-9)… (Tom and Marylou’s slip from the previous month). But at $1.75 / foot / day being on less expensive mooring was desirable. So, SEEKER who is on a mooring saw that a rental Catamaran was leaving they called us, and I immediately took our dinghy out to the vacated BALL, and tied “George” (our dinghy) to the mooring pendant. Then EARL… and the UBER DINK came and took me back to AB in slip L-9. We disconnected power, and lines, and immediately backed out, and came to this mooring… picking up the mooring was a snap with the big dinghy tied to the pendant. SO, WE’RE safe on a mooring in a very protected harbor for this coming storm.
The next storm may be different… We’ll be down island; somewhere near or at Man-O-War Cay. We’ll see how that works out.
But for now… most of our friends are right here… SEEKER; Nightengale; MINX; etc. and We know that Tom and Marylou on “Dalmatian” are safe in Green Turtle Cay.
After the “tag-team” move to a mooring we went into the office and took care of the paperwork (slip to mooring); Then went for lunch, down the road, at the Bahamian Shore Club…. NICE.
Mid-afternoon we were invited to Jim, and Beth’s condo for delicious Margarita’s, and visit…
Early evening we stayed at the POOL at Treasure Cay, and participated in the PIZZA night. (delicious pizza, BTW). As we were going back to our respective vessels, we met the crew of Nightengale coming on-shore for showers, etc. Their company from Fairbanks (Tim, and Jill) are leaving Friday.
Busy day… The wind has not really filled in here YET. Partly cloudy. More Later.
