Great Sale Cay
05 April 2017
We left Allans Pensacola and had a great sail to Great Sale Cay. We are expecting some strong North West wind and didn't feel safe at Allans Pensacola as it is open to westerlies.
Unfortunately Great Sale Cay anchorage is open to the south and that is what we had. We anchored off the north west shore line and had decent coverage for the night.
The following day we moved at noon to the south anchorage even though the wind was south and 18 knots. We were expecting higher winds from the west in about 3 hours. The west winds did not arrive until midnight so we had several very uncomfortable hours with 18-20 knot south winds on the nose with 2-4' waves. Once the strong westerlies came at midnight we were much better off.
We stayed the next day waiting for the wind to calm down.
