Damn that wind!

I am beginning to question going to the East Coast of America for the next hurricane season. The wind, which for the last 18 months has come from the East, is all over the place. April was supposed to be the month to travel north and west as the "north" winds would have stopped. NOT SO this year! they are heading across out of the States every couple of days. OK so they are supposed to last maybe 24 hours at this time of the year, NOT SO this year!

Our Plans to go from Eleuthra to the Abacos, NNW of Eleuthra, and traveling up the chain of Islands is now dashed. We have a 5 day NE wind settled on us. Ok we could tack all the way there but we are cruising not racing so that's a no go! The winds did provide some squalls so we got some much needed rain water for the tank but that is all good for. We have decided to change our direction yet again and move directly east to get to the US coast. The plan "today" is to head towards Nassau and then the Berry Islands, across the Great Bahama Bank (yes Jay is getting used to crossing shallow water Banks), to Bimini then to Palm Beach, US. it will then only be a 150 NM hop up to Canaveral.

We have had some great swims where we are here at Governors Harbour, some of the best fans we have seen and lots of shells and fish.
