Strongs Winds & A Sail to Tahiti Beach

Our fun in Lynyard Cay continues! Before the strong winds hit us we spend one more day exploring the island by dinghy, heading out to the south side to see if there is any good snorkeling for us. We don’t find that, but what we do find is a landscape that is just a little bit alien to us.
When the strong easterly winds do fill in we make the short walk across the island to check out the waves as they crash in from the Atlantic side. While being in the protection of the island, it’s great to be able to appreciate the ferocity mother nature can throw your way.

When the winds settle down enough for us to travel, we up anchor and make our way north again. Passing by the North Bar Channel, we experience a little bit of swell caused by the days of easterly winds. Elements handled the waves like a champ, and soon we were back to the protection of the island and perfect sailing.

Because so many people have been questioning our traveler set-up, we jump just a little bit ahead to explain how we have our mainsail set up, and Matt shows the pros and cons of what we’re currently working with.

The end of the day, though, brings us to stunning Tahiti Beach and a great spot to spend an afternoon relaxing.

Cheers from the Bahamas!
