Off to Clarence Town
04 February 2019 | Clarence Town, Long Island
We had an early morning start to get through our narrow cut at high tide. Tim and Karen led the way, then Ti Amo and 2 Outrageous. It was a fairly benign departure.....definitely not as dicey as when we went in the cut several days ago.
The morning looked beautiful as we began our trip up around the top of Long Island and then down the eastern side (Atlantic side) to a destination toward the southern end of the island.
The wind picked up as the made the turn at the northern end of Long Island and then came the rains. We were also stuck in a swell because of tide and current than kept us rolling most of the day. We had deployed the main sail for stability and the headsail earlier for the added speed until......the winds picked up. We had to then reef the headsail and within an hour or so we were reefing the main as well. The wind with the rain was actually a squall that we seemed to be right in the middle of and it was the only area in the Bahamas reporting ANY rain. Well it was the most rain I think we have ever seen in the Bahamas.
After eight hours of pounding, rolling, reefing we were glad to see the anchorage. But guess what? When we entered another squall came through the anchorage. Greg and I stayed out until the squall passed and then went in behind 2 Outrageous and Grace V to anchor.
The anchorage was rolly, but it was MOSTLY dry and pleasant enough to get a nights sleep. If you look at your charts the only thing protecting most of the anchoring spots here from the Atlantic Ocean are a couple of coral banks. Not a lot of land protection.
Off to the grocery store and then on to Little Harbor.
