NOT the THORNY PATH to the Caribbean (MJ Sailing – EP 61)

We leave Eluthera with only 950 miles separating us from St. Maarten. It’s Element’s first offshore passage since her refit, and ours since we returned to Florida 3 years ago to lay eyes on her for the first time.

We start the journey with a strong breeze and full winds in our sails, covering lots of miles as we leave the Bahamas in the rear view mirror. But a few hours out in standing waves, and we realized that neither of us quite have our sea legs back yet. And Georgie realizes she can’t go 5 seconds without being close enough to touch us.

But it feels good to be on our way, and we give Elements the chance to show us what she’s made of out on the open water.

Cheers from the Atlantic Ocean!

Having just transited the Devil’s Backbone on the north end of Eleuthera, we’re dropped off near beautiful Harbour Island. We seize the day with a stop at Man Island before continuing to our anchorage.

We spend the next day touring the ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS Dunmoretown, where all the rich people come to stay in Eleuthera. The marinas are full of mega yachts and the streets are full of colorful hotels, vistas, and restaurants. On the east side of the island is famous pink sand beach, due to crushed up coral. We find it to be the place to be on a Sunday afternoon, and chill there for a bit before a late lunch with the biggest conch sandwich I’ve ever seen!

We realize we have a weather window coming up in our favor to make the 950 jump from Eleuthera down to St. Martin, and get the boat in passage ready mode.

Cheers from the Bahamas!
