We are getting ready to cross from Bimini
, where we are meeting up with friends and then continue to the Exumas
we are looking at is an overnight from Gun Cay to the NW light and then keep going to Nassau
, all in about 22 hours straight. Another route
is North Rock to Mackie Shoal and anchor
for the night, then onto Chub Cay and dock
for the night, and then to Nassau the next day, taking three days total but no overnight cruising.
We both have some sailing experience, but have never done an overnight passage
, at least not outside of our ASA
courses. We have a good weather
window coming up that will be pretty calm no matter which option we choose.
I'm looking for input from those who have done this crossing before and any recommendations you may have for us first-timers in the Bahamas
