Re: Headed to Bimini Friday,, first time

So we crossed today, now anchored at cat cay. Good news is the wind should back to the north starting late tonight so should make for a fast sail down to GT. Just have to slog to nw channel before we can take full advantage of it. Might be another east bound window Monday or Tuesday for you although at this point it doesn't look like anything that great.

Re: Headed to Bimini Friday,, first time

This morning finds us sailing on the West side of Great Exuma. Thanks to the low spinning to the east of us providing the north winds we have been sailing between 9 and 12 knots since turning south at NW Chanel. Hit 15 knots last night which will take the drowsiness right out of you. It's a wonderful thing when you don't have to deal with the typical east winds.
