Whale Cay Cut & The Cold Front

Our first cold front approaches us in the Bahamas, and we get hit with it HARD!

Leaving No Name Cay, we want to get ourselves further south in the Abacos, but this means taking the Whale Cay Cut. To avoid shoals in front of Treasure Cay, we need to make our way into the Atlantic through a strip of reefs and round a small island before cutting back into the Sea of Abaco. With east winds that are constantly pushing swells and a rage into here though, timing your trip through is everything.

Once we’re safely through our number one priority is finding shelter from a strong cold front about to blow through, and we hunker down in Marsh Harbour to try and find cover. When the storm hits us on the second day we are greeted with winds gusting near 50 and boats dragging around us through the harbor.

Never a dull moment for our trip through the Abacos.

Cheers from the Bahamas!

Hanging Around the Abacos

Only a few days into the Abacos, we realize there is still so much more to see there!

We spend one more great afternoon in Powell Cay where we take the dinghy to check out the beaches on the south side, and then head over to our new friends Brian and Shari’s boat for a lesson in silk swinging (and this girl has some talent!).

From there we head down to Green Turtle Cay in some crappy weather conditions, which are made only crappier when we found out our headsail had a tear.

Not letting that get us down though, we spend a few enjoyable days in GTC before going just a little further south to play with the pigs in No Name Cay. Abacos, you keep surprising us every day we’re here!

CRYSTAL CLEAR Bahamian Waters

Our first days in the Bahamas led us to the clearest water in the world, where it is like looking at an aquarium from our deck.

After entering the Little Bahama Bank, we spend a full day motoring through light winds only to get half way through. Dropping anchor in the middle of nowhere for the night, we wake us to glass calm water and a pod of dolphins coming to say hello.

Making our way to Powell Cay that night, we spend a few days exploring this beautiful and uninhabited island, hiking through jungle like trails and even taking Georgie for walks on the beach while enjoying beautiful sunsets.

Cheers from the Bahamas!

Bahamas Bound

We didn’t know how long we’d be stuck on the coast of Florida, but it turns out we were given a window to get to the Bahamas!

Getting to the Palm Beach Inlet took a full day of motoring from Stuart, full of the bascule bridges we would love to try and avoid if only we trusted the two inlets north of Palm Beach. And the weather window we had been rushing to get of course changed course on it.

A few extra days hanging around Palm Beach, and we were given the weather window we were looking for to get to the Bahamas. With nice 15 knot winds out of the south, we thought the crossing would be everything we’d planned for it to be, except the Gulf Stream had other plans in mind for us.

Cheers from the Bahamas!
