Riding Out Another Storm

08 February 2010 | Little Farmer’s Cay, Exumas
Brian
We arrived in Farmer's Cay through a shallow tight cut in the reef. The good news our little anchoring area was protected from the west wind, which was on it's way with another storm. We anchored with two anchors out each secured at the bow of the boat. They call this a Bahamian Moor because the wind and current shifts throughout the Bahamas. The bottom was mostly hard flat limestone but with patches of sand. I had to dive down and physically move our anchors and dig them into what sand there was. I was successful and our anchors held us good through the next blow, which came that night. We did take a walk and met some friends from Canada who have a great dog (Vicki) who is a Vizla breed. When we get back we want to find a Vizla of our own.....
After the storm we wanted to ride the northeast winds down the outside of the Exumas to George Town. We had to motor through a cut into the open Atlantic Ocean. As we pushed through the narrow passage the wind and current were opposed and we were taking waves over the bow. This was only very scary for about 15 minutes then we were in open Deep Ocean. It was a six-hour sail to George Town as we passed Cay after Cay riding four-foot ocean swells and sailing in 10-13 knot northeast winds.
