Great Sale Cay to Manjack Cay

Today we are under way by 8:15AM and have a long day ahead. We are heading to Manjack Cay or it is sometimes referred to as Munjack Cay. This is another uninhabited pristine island located in the Abacos. It is popular for fishing and taking lobsters. Kelly wants to go snorkeling for lobsters. I head us out of Great Sale Cay and we are motoring again due to the wind direction. I steer us for over an hour as Kelly cleans the anchor, sets up the waypoints for our course and puts out his fishing lines. I get us to our third waypoint and Kelly takes over so I can get caught up in my journal. While I am writing, Kelly gets a hit on his yo-yo fishing line. He pulls in the line, just to find fish teeth imbedded in the lure, no fish. Ah, the one that got away! The girls have been playing all morning inside the boat. They are having a grand time playing all of their small travel games. The winner receives small prizes (small toys that they brought).

After lunch we decide to put up the Genoa and Mizzen as the wind is picking up speed and the direction is favorable for sailing. We are now moving along over 7.5 knots with the engine running at a slow speed.

We pull up to Munjack Cay at 4:10 PM. Kelly finds an anchorage with no one in it, so we head there. We put the anchor down, and it doesn't hold. It takes four more attempts before we get it to set. The bottom is quite hard and the anchor just wants to skid across the surface. Finally, at 5:30 we are safely at anchor. The daylight is fading as sunset is approaching fast and our plan to go sightseeing from the dinghy will have to wait until tomorrow. The insects were beginning to bite so we closed ourselves up in the boat and got the interior straightened up. We had dinner and then watched the movie Jurassic Park.

Extra:
It was the summer of 2001 when we were bored and found ourselves riding around in the car going from one marina to the next looking at other people's boats. It must have been a lousy sailing day for us not to be out and about somewhere on our own boat. Then, there it was, sitting on the hard with [...]
