Adventure of a lifetime

Sailing round the world....slowly

Waterspouts

Departed 0700 once the current had slowed slightly through the cut. 32nms today up to Bullocks Harbour at Great Harbour Cay - the top of the Berry Island Chain.
Had light winds (which we expected) and were able to sail for the first 3.5hrs, but then...

Easter Sunday Passage

I was wide awake at 0400 thinking about the possibility of being stuck at achor in Nassau harbour for another week - something I was not looking forward to. When I suddenly thought about the anchorage at the top of Great harbour Cay. So, without disturbing...

Change of plans

After chatting with Oops last night we decided to meet them in Nassau rather than the Berrys otherwise with the upcoming winds, they may not be able to get to Nassau in time for their appointment. So this morning we had a 0700 departure - the winds and swell...

Back to Royal

Seems that Sunday is visiting day. We had planned to head down to Royal Island or Egg this afternoon, but just after lunch a couple from SY Kite popped in for a chat in their dinghy, and then just after they left, another couple from SY Despina popped over...

Escaping the wind

Wind is going to come in from the N later this afternoon and increase in strength so we waited until it had clocked around a bit and then moved out to Russel Island anchorage. This is not far from the channel entrace to Spanish Wells, it's just on the other...

Moving from the wind...again

Once more the wind has dictated we move from our current anchorage around the corner to a more protected bay. The winds increased this morning, so we moved a whole mile around the headland to Gun Point. Very calm and protected here and a pretty bay to sit in...

Back to Spanish Wells

Only moving 10nms today and going to a familiar anchorage so no rush to leave early - just had to leave with enough wind to sail rather than motor.
Had a good sail on the genoa all the way, just used the motor to go through the channel to get to the...

Dolphins at play

An absolutely beautiful sail yesterday Hatchet bay to Current Cut -18 nms. Had a pod of 7 dolphins swimming and playing alongside for a while which is always beautiful to watch.
Just had the Genoa out as we didn't want to go to fast, had to time the...

Sharing with sharks

Hatchet Bay - 11nms - 2hr 14min - Ave 5.1kts
A nice sail back today, ran the motor for a bit just to make water, but didn't engage gear. About half way up, we hooked a fish and as Phil was reeling it in, it made for a 2nd run and took off, dragging...

Stunning Alabaster

Zodi explore today, we went all the way up to the N end of the bay and walked the beaches there. We circumnavigated the small Pelican Cay and I went for a quick snorkel but the water was a bit murky and there weren't so many little fish to harass. Walked the...
