23° 30.4' N 75° 45.768' W 17 Mar 2019 19:44 None None None Back and forth between Long Island and Goergetown!This time to pick up my cousin Sally who is flying in for a visit and hopefully some sailing. Weather in the next several days is not encouraging. Fingers crossed that the front and bad weather stays north.
23° 21.569' N 75° 8.272' W 12 Mar 2019 20:51 None None None Back in Thompson's Bay to pick up two packages of parts being shipped from the States. Great shipping service here that unfortunately is not available in Georgetown.
23° 30.892' N 75° 44.715' W 03 Mar 2019 20:41 None None None Georgetown, Great Exuma, Bahamas. Very nice downwind sail from Long Island. We're at Sand Dollar Beach. Almost all catamarans but plenty of room. Plan to be here for several days and then set off again when the weather settles down a bit. Strong northerly winds forecast starting Wednesday.Looking forward to our daily walks along the sound side beach on Stocking Island Beach.
23° 21.059' N 75° 8.254' W 25 Feb 2019 21:49 None None None Thompson's Bay, Long Island, Bahamas.A very pleasant 20 mile beat in 10-12 knots and flat seas followed by 20 miles of motoring into the same 10-12 knots and flat seas. Not so bad but two forty mile days back to back has tuckered out this geriatric crew. I had planned on an emergency beer run but couldn't face the challenge after getting the dinghy inflated and off the deck. It will have be a one beer night. Many chores to do here in the next several days. Next plans not yet formalized.
23° 1.48' N 75° 43.195' W 24 Feb 2019 09:30 None None None Water Cay, Jumentos, Bahama. Another good sail today from Buena Vista to Water Cay. Beam reach shifting to close reach by the end of the day. We chose a different anchoring spot from the one whereb we had problems during the squall when we were here last time. A little more rolly but seems to have much better holding. Today is my birthday so a special dinner is being planned. It's been a very good visit to the Jumentos. Tomorrow we head back for Thompson's Bay, Long Island.
