23° 21.33' N 75° 8.93' W 12 Mar 2018 19:56 6.6 None None Good to be underway again. Had a nice beam reach in 15-20 over to Thompson's Bay, Long Island. Beautiful clear blue skies and temp in the 80's while our friends and family back home have to suffer through another Northeaster with 12-16" of snow. We get out share of snotty weather as well....we may get squalls with 35 knots tonight after midnight. Came here to get fuel since the fuel dock in Georgetown is out of action due to last summer's Hurricane. Once we get fuel and a window we'll start out for Great Inagua and then Panama.
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.
