Little Farmers Cay – Feb 2nd
30 March 2012
We sailed down the chain another 10 miles to Little Farmers Cay and anchored by Oven Rock in just over 7 feet of water with Majiks. Polar Bear, Karen Ann and Odyssey arrived the day before and were anchored/moored in Big Harbor across from the Little Farmers Yacht Club. There is one dock and a dinghy dock and a bar/restaurant (sort of). Flextime arrived the next day and was anchored in the bay with us. The plan was to spend a few days here as this weekend was the islands biggest event held on the first Friday in February (5 F's). The locals are joined by Bahamians from other islands for a weekend of Bahamian C-Class racing. A new bar and grand stand was built this year for the event. The bar, believe or not was right beside the airport runway and people just walked runway as if it was a street. When a plane needed to land they buzzed the runway first to get everyone off it. The racing boats were sailed to the island or arrived on the supply boat. There were about 10 of these boats and one of the sunk at the start line of the race on the first day. It was dragged back to shore that evening. We really did not watch much of the racing as the schedule was typical of the Bahamas. Not when the race is going to start or where the race course is going to be. The first the race course was all through the boats that were anchored across from the new bar. We spent three lovely days there before moving on to our next stop.
