COMMENT: Beach House – ANCHORED – Calabash Bay – NW corner Long Island, Bahamas
We\’re adjacent to the Cape Santa Maria Resort and one of the several Columbus Monuments.
The 24 volt alternator bracket which holds the front right engine mount stable broke on the port engine. The weld cracked. Story in the blog. It\’s fixed and we\’re back off after 3 days at Clarence Town. We visited the \”Father Jerome Churches\” (google it) and saw Dean\’s Blue Hole (the deepest known in the world). Several free diving records have been set here including a few tragic losses! We then took a drive of the entire island. It\’s 80 miles long but only averages a mile wide! Today\’s sail was very wind. 17-30 knots. Mostly with a reef and staysail. Tomorrow, we\’ll head for Georgetown in the Southern Exumas. Civilization will show it\’s first signs of beckoning there.
