New Position - Water Cay, Ragged Islands, Bahamas

Hi Everyone,

Local Time - 13:45. No mobile/internet communication so sending this position report by SatPhone.

We are now in one of the most isolated parts of the Bahamas - the Ragged Island chain. There is no inhabitants, no shops, no telephone or internet - just us. Looking forward to the snorkelling, fishing, shelling and the pure isolation.

No mobile or internet reception here, however the SatPhone is working and we can send and receive emails, text messages and telephone calls via it. Please donĀ't send email replies to this SatPhone email address unless it is important. The satphone email address for important messages is

However, you can call or text message to the SatPhone on +881632648785. The text message is free, but satphone calls are expensive. You can send emails to our normal email address but we will not respond to them until we have mobile phone reception in 2 to 4 weeks.

Love to everyone - Kevin and Patti xxx
