Off to Highbourne Cay

31 March 2019 | Highbourne Cay, Exumas

0730 and we are awaiting Sea Axis to drop their mooring ball as we would like to follow them out of the anchorage. Sea Axis is a 125 foot luxury yacht that sleeps twelve guests and has seven crew members. She is an older luxury yacht that has been updated in the last couple of years. The crew struggled to get the mooring line free and ended up having to toss one line and let the tender deal with it after they had left. But in our desire to follow her, we did not realize she was going to wait on her tender and we had left our mooring ball (quite easily I might add) so we needed to get a move on. We pass her in the anchorage and she then followed us out. There is a cut to the ocean that we needed to maneuver on the northern egress from the anchorage and while it was a little rolly and pitchy, we got through and then set our sights for Highbourne.

The day was nearly overcast and a slight chill in the air for most of our ride. We were happy to get to put the sails out and enjoy yet another day of sailing in the Bahamas.

Our approach to Highbourne showed a number of folks seemingly doing the same as us.....heading north towards “Home” or the Abacos and then home. Not many folks are heading south from here this late in the season but you may find one or two.

We have an early dinner and get ready for our departure for Egg/Little Egg/Royall Island area where we will wait and intend to cross to the Abacos by Monday or Tuesday at the latest. Kind of sad to say we are thinking about our trip home already, but we still have Thom and Lynn coming from Philadelphia the middle of April. We have been wanting to have them down here before but this is the first year we could work it all out so we are excited to have them come visit.

Off to bed for an early departure.
