Advice on Musha, Cave Cay and Rudder Cay

We are in Black Point wanting to head to GT and the wind is S-SE for the next 3-4 days. Not wanting to beat to windward, which of the more southern cays would be a good place to wait out the weather? Tuesday looks good with wind from the East although it will be about 20 knots so we will need a flood tide to exit to the sound and to go into GT.
We do not have internet so once we leave Black Point we will not have weather reports unless we can get them at Cave Cay.

Thanks!

Silent Faith

Re: Advice on Musha, Cave Cay and Rudder Cay

There are a couple of good anchorages along the lee side of Guana cay between Black Point and Little Farmers cay with snorkeling, etc.
There is a small cove at the NW end of Big Farmers cay which is good in E-SSE winds. On Little Farmers you can visit Ocean Cabin or the Yacht Club and I think there's a couple of other places I don't know the names of.
I've anchored many times west of Cave Cay cut (further west than the entrance to Cave Cay Marina). USE AN ANCHOR LIGHT! Everywhere, actually.

If you don't draw too much to use the Pimblicos route, the anchorage where Lee Stocking island joins Williams cay (I think that's the name) is delightful.
If you draw less than 4' you can go farther and anchor at Barretarre past the mailboat dock and visit Norman's Fishermans Inn and The Same Old Place.
In both cases you need a sense of adventure, good light, and a rising tide. Not to mention either the Explorer Charts or Steve Pavlidis' Exuma Guide, preferably both.
Have fun.

Thanks for the information! We will go to Cave Cay on Monday and head for GT Tuesday as the wind will finally turn east
Lee Stocking sounds good too. Thanks again!
