Completing the Crossing

09 November 2016
Our final night saw perfect seas at our stern. Easily 10 feet at times but lengthy period. We headed for Memory Rock. At midnight I took my four hour shift. The team had us three miles off Memory Rock. The entry was easy, with very small seas. We proceeded toward Sale Cay in the dark and at sunrise found ourselves closing in on Abaco Island. The seas were all flat until we crossed between Manjack and Green Turtle. Norm. Was at the helm. Toby on the Fordeck cleaning things up. Tom calls out, "look at those rollers"! Toby yells, "turn into them". Then, a series of perfect waves, one after another, makes their way across the bank. Norm motors us to safety. Another lesson! We arrived at 2:30, cleared customs, cleaned up (that is a real joy after four days), and made a dinner celebration at The Green Turtle Lodge. Girls arrive tomorrow.
