Crossing to the Abacos
02 April 2019 | Spencers Bight, Abacos, Bahamas
Today we are crossing to the Abacos while the weather is settled. We have had hopes of meeting up with Bright Ayes (our friends from Toms River) and it looks as though that may happen if we get into Hope Town or Marsh Harbour this week.
We may as well be a trawler today as the wind is blowing maybe 2 - 3 knots. That is not enough to put out the head sail but we do deploy the main for stablity. So on crossings such as this you read, study charts and enjoy your surroundings. Of course there is the radio “traffic” that is quite entertaining at times. The one thing we have found amazing in this body of water is all the seaweed that is floating along. It has caused many a reel to spin today with guys thinking they caught a tuna or Mahi Mahi.
Our ETA is about 4:00 PM and we are on target for that. There was a mass of boats in procession all doing the same route. At times it was almost a perfect line of about ten boats until someone went rogue and messed up the visual for us all. Oh well, it is amazing the things that interest you when you are “stuck” on the water for 9 hours.
We are safely anchored and enjoying a nice evening just north of Little Harbor at Spencers Bight. Tomorrow we will leave 2 Outrageous but Migration will continue with us up to Marsh Harbor. Paul and Laurie are visiting friends at Lubbers Quarters before heading back to Canada. Charlie on Migration has been with them since we last saw them back at Lee Stocking Island.
