23° 30.786' N 75° 44.635' W 11 Apr 2019 13:18 None None None Georgetown, Bahamas. Back at Sand Dollar Beach. Amy leaves today at Noon for the States to visit with family. I'll hopefully get all my projects done for the upcoming Bermuda/Azores passages.
23° 21.317' N 75° 8.327' W 04 Apr 2019 19:37 None None None Thompson's Bay, Long Island. Wonderful day of sailing from Conception. Downwind for 15 miles then 20 miles of reaching. Winds were stronger than forecast, 20-25 knots so we were flying. Good practice for us. Will get fuel here for our Bermuda passage and also groceries for the next couple weeks while Amy is home. She leaves next week. Saw Freya, another PS40, on AIS and made plans to get together to talk about his trip two years ago to Bermuda/Azores/Med.
23° 51.176' N 75° 7.352' W 03 Apr 2019 19:45 None None None Conception Island,Bahamas.Last night was very rolly at Port Howe with no wind and swells coming over the reef. Checked out the reef after breakfast. At one time the reef was very pretty with a lot of structure. Now not much remains alive. A few fish and some soft coral. Still very light wind so we motor sailed over to Conception after our dive. Conception is always pretty but we are not alone. About 12 - 15 boats enjoying the beauty.
24° 8.994' N 75° 20.66' W 02 Apr 2019 21:01 None None None Port Howe, Cat Island. Enjoyed ourselves so much last time we decided to return when the wind became favorable. We plan to explore the reef tomorrow and perhaps have another meal at the Greenwood Lodge if we are up for hitch hiking.
23° 46.291' N 76° 6.432' W 31 Mar 2019 17:42 None None None Lee Stocking Island. Sally has returned home. Good time had by all. We motored up to Lee Stocking for our first ever visit here. Former NASA research center has been abandoned for 5+years. Everything boarded up bit still a very pretty spot. Very shallow all about. Cut was easy to enter
