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.
