COMMENT: Beach House – ANCHORED – Chubb Cay, Berry Islands – The Bahamas

We had a lovely get together last evening aboard Beach House with new friends Anneke and Tom (from Holland) aboard s/v “Elisa”
They left very early this morning for The Abacos and we left on the 70 mile trip to Chubb Cay in the Berry Islands. We had great wind from dead astern
all day and with a full mainsail and genoa poled out to windward, we made very good time. We actually anchored in this exact spot last June just before our arrival
in Ft. Lauderdale. We suspect we’ll be here tomorrow waiting out the southerly that is expected and then may have a nice weather window to pursue the “adventure route” down the west side of Andros Island.

Enjoy the Super Bowl…we haven’t decided yet if we’ll go into the restaurant and watch yet or not. It’s a bit blustery…..:-)

COMMENT: Beach House -DOCKED-St. Georges Cay, Eleuthra – The Bahamas

We left on the falling tide from Little Harbour on Great Abaco at 0710 am this morning. The day turned out to be great sailing as we covered the 58 miles.
In about 8 hours. The winds were 13-20 knots from the NNE with a 2 meter swell. We needed propane and want to do a bit of marketing before heading out so we
took two nights here at Yacht Haven Marina (where we appear to be the only boat!). Tomorrow, we’ll take the Ferry from here to Harbour Island which is the supposed posh spot of the island. It takes the route of the “Devil’s Backbone” which is shallow, winding and full of bommies. As such, we’ll let them do the driving.
They’re fast and it’s about 15 miles each way.

The weather should lighten for the next few days, but then seems to come back strong off the coast of Central Florida. We’ll keep an eye out.
KIT,
Scott and Nikki

COMMENT: Beach House – MOORED – Little Harbour, Southern Tip of Great Abaco Island

Yesterday, we rented bikes and took a tour of Elbow Cay including a nice stop off at Sea Breeze Marina (lunch) and the pink sands of Tahiti Beach.

We’ve been under the influence of the weather that has hit the Northeast USA hard. We’ve had strong northerlies which should turn more to the NNE
tomorrow and back off a little. It should make for a brisk sail to Eleuthra where we will stay on the west side at Spanish Wells. It’s a long day tomorrow,
about 63 miles or so. We’ve moved 15 miles to the south of Hope Town today through the shallow Abaco Sea. Glad to have that behind us and get closer to Eleuthra
for tomorrows sail.

We have internet today, but tomorrow we will only be back on email.
