Welcoming guests to Georgetown

Welcoming guests to Georgetown https://photos.app.goo.gl/8cxW2H08KjPgAEs33 After two weeks island hopping in the Raggeds, we started to head north back towards Georgetown. One of my best friends had taken a spur of the moment decision to bring herself and her teenage daughter down to see us, and they were arriving into Georgetown airport on 4th April. We had two bruising days battering into strong easterly winds on the inside of the Raggeds, stopping overnight at Water Cay. All anchorages in ...

Another Cold Front

Another Cold Front https://photos.app.goo.gl/1h2fiyTzZuzyacap1 We moved over from Southside, Ragged Island to Hog Cay when the winds were predicted to go hard from the North and the North East. We moved over with Roam, and anchored to the north of the popular beach with the Hog Cay Yacht Club tiki hut. We dropped the hook in 2.5 meters of crystal clear water, I could see patches of turtle grass, but the bottom was mostly a white sand bottom. The cliffs were higher here, made of sandstone that ...

Visit the Out Islands of the Bahamas

Out Islands Bahamas https://photos.app.goo.gl/1h2fiyTzZuzyacap1 We are settled in at Ragged Island in the Southern Bahamas.  Life is real cruising here, there are  fewer boats here than in the Exumas, and the water is amazingly clear and full of life. We left Georgetown 5 days ago, yet it seems we have been away for much longer. The trip from GT went outside from the southern channel and followed the deep water sound to Long Island, hoping to catch some Mahi as we went. The water was clear an...

Life in the Bahamas

Life in the Bahamas We are settling into our boat routine. We are anchored off of Jacks Bay, just south of Black Point Great Inagua. We are happily the only boat in the anchorage. We spent a night at Little Bay three days ago, took a 4 mile walk to Blackpoint Settlement, looked over the 20-30 boats anchored there and walked back to our dinghy landing place at Little Bay. It’s been a very different trip this year to last. We are on a similar schedule and float plan (as if we plan) as another No...

Back to the Islands

Back on the cruise https://photos.app.goo.gl/S3nGHxMiMuuWXBM33 We continued maintenance project while at Old Port Cove Marina, bidding our time for a weather window to cross the Gulf Stream and into the Bahamas. We really love Old Port Cove.  It is truly a first class marina. Nice floating docks, pump out service at each slip. There is a nice restaurant on site, a great boater’s lounge, where we can watch the NFL playoffs, a gym for Jenny, courtesy car to the supermarket. But we were growi...

Exciting new technology

Communications is a challenge for cruisers. We have recently added the Garmin in reach satellite tracker. With this device we can share our tracks real time with our friends and family. We can text to our point of contact when we depart and arrive, and we have instant SOS connection anywhere in the world with this device. I think it is a fun device, but obviously adds another layer of safety for our voyages. Please follow the link to see our track and our current location. https://share.g...
