The BAHAMAS!!!!!!

07 January 2019 | West End, Abacos
Beautiful Sunny & 75 - Low east winds
The dream came true - TARDIS is in the BAHAMAS!!!! That's Charlie this morning hoisting our host countries flag for the next two months.

TARDIS took a short trip from the anchorage outside of West End, Abacos to the immigration office.



You know you are in the islands when the three customs officers are singing to island music playing on the TV while the paperwork is completed. Eileen missed this part as she was not allowed off the boat until the quarantine flag was lowered.



Here's TARDIS at the dock at the marina. In the Bahamas you are on your own with docking. Of course the wind was on our starboard beam when we pulled away.



After waiting at Lake Sylvia in Fort Lauderdale since December 18th it was no big deal that the crossing took a little longer then anticipated.

We got underway just after dawn, passing under the SE 17th Street bridge just after sunrise.



The first little ship of many, we thought, passed us at the outer mark of Port Everglades Inlet.



To our surprise that was the only other vessel we saw all the way to West End!

For the first six hours we motor sailed with about 2/3rds of the jib out, no main, hitting 8+ often and averaging over 7. ETA at that point was 4:30pm. Sunset in the Bahamas we thought.

Mid day in the gulf stream in 4-7' rollers the wind clocked and went to on the nose. In came the jib and speed dropped to 5ish and TARDIS slogged in the wind and waves the rest of the way.

Once you get used to the motion of the boat life is fairly normal.

Food is served.



Adjustments are made below to keep items in place.



You monitor the depths, just in case. Every once in a while you find shallower water and the depth meter actually works.



Look forward and back. You never know when another vessel may appear.





Time for plotting the course.



Taking a bit longer provided a great sunset at sea.



Waking up in the Bahamas and watching the sunrise was just as good.



The dream has come true. All the hard work, planning and dedication is paying off. TARDIS has taken us on an adventure, traveling in time.

Tomorrow we head east, stay tuned.
