Rudder Cut Cay to George Town
04 May 2011
Winds had dropped off to 9-13, but leftover seas and variable winds from E-NE to E-SE and back only allowed us to sail four miles before the crew turned green and Captain Big Dog decided it was time to motorsail for an early afternoon arrival (the crew was very thankful!). We anchored near Kidd's Cove and dinked into town to show Elaine the metropolis of George Town and the wonderful grocery - Exuma Market. Elaine finished the book "Winds from the Carolinas" - a novel set in the Bahamas after the American Revolution. Can't wait to start reading it. George Town is a little more laid back since the Family Island Regatta is over and most of the cruising boats have departed (high count was between 300-400, now at about 40-50). Alcohol and food prices also seemed to have dropped with the departure of the mass of cruising boats. We made a wet dink ride over to ChatnChill for burgers on the beach for dinner and a Stocking Island harbor tour. We watched the last movie Elaine brought, Shakespeare in Love - fun!
