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!
