Well, the commotion started about Four PM yesterday. We were moving fast enough to have to burn off time to enter the strong current cuts in daylight. Toby pulled down data showing very high seas heading our way from a large storm near Bermuda. What will the seas be like? Everyone said 8-10 foot seas from northeast. No way to get in. Two options. Sail south 60 miles to Eluthera and hide. Or, go right 30 degrees and enter the west end of the Bahama Bank at Memory Rock.

So, course change. We sailed through the night at now sit 90 miles from our entry point on the West End. New landing sight. Going to one of my favorites...Green Turtle Cay Club and Marina. Best lobster Benedict in the Bahamas. The best lobster Ravioli in the world.

The crew finally caught a fish. Third one on, first landed. Mahi-Mahi for dinner tonight. We will sail the bank this evening and in daylight tomorrow. It is a beautiful experience. John was screaming fish on, Bill backing up the haul. Tom tore himself out of bed. Norm's a real mess with six in the cockpit. Toby brought up the tequila, then filleted the fish. Don't worry JoAnne, I'll clean the deck in Green Turtle.
