Latitude Longitude Date / Time (UTC) Depth (m) Speed (kts) Course (°T) Comment
23° 30.81' N 75° 45.059' W 24 Jan 2018 09:30 None None None Back in Georgetown after Xmas/New Years at home with family and friends.Great time but a bit cold and snowy. We moved out of our hurricane hole to an anchorage in the harbor. Shango survived the separation except for a misbehaving watermaker. Might need to order a part which is not aboard. Strong front supposed to come through tonight producing some wind, steady 25-35, for the next 3-4 days. We have a good anchorage with plenty of chain out. Good time for boat projects.
23° 31.31' N 75° 45.31' W 09 Dec 2017 23:04 None None None Shango is in Hole 3 as we go home for the Xmas and New Years.
23° 30.83' N 75° 44.65' W 06 Dec 2017 19:20 None None None Back in Georgetown to put Shango safely in Hurricane Hole 3 and to fly back for the Holidays. Great time in Long Island at the usual places and enjoyed a new beach bar/restaurant called Tiny's. Left a bit early to avoid an expected nasty cold front.
23° 21.55' N 75° 8.37' W 30 Nov 2017 19:50 6.5 None None Thompson's Bay Long Island. Good to get out for a sail again. Enjoyed a quiet Georgetown and met a bunch of interesting people. Not surprised that we are the only boat in Thompson's Bay, but, Salt Pond is also empty. Does not bode well for the "new" cruiser's spot that was just opening when we were here last in 2010. Greeted by Anehada on the VHF as we entered Thompson's Bay. Amazingly they remembered us from a televised football game at a bar here in 2009. They now have a house in the bay and watch boats arrive.
23° 30.82' N 75° 44.65' W 14 Nov 2017 15:19 None None None Sand Dollar Beach, Georgetown, Great Exuma. As we came through the cut and had our first glimpse of Elizebeth Harbor we were shocked to find less than 10 anchored boats where in peak season there are 300-400.We knew we were early but we and the few cruisers who are here as well as bar tenders and shop owners are also a bit surprised by the small number of boats especially given the hurricane damage to the Caribbean. We're quite happy to enjoy the peace and quiet, the beautiful beach walks and the good protection. We have arranged a mooring in one of the hurricane holes for our trip home in December. Still have not firmed up our next steps when we return after the first of the year.
