I did that trip in 1980 in a Macgregor
25. I left in the afternoon to clear the reef and arrived in the daylight. Dodging freighters and thunderstorms all night and using a direction finder we ended up at Cat Cay, eight miles south. Not bad for guess and by golly navigation
. Really loved Bimini but we had to hangout for the tide to change to get into the harbor. A bit too much current
for our wee boat
. We spent two weeks there before trying to cross the bank which was aborted by hurricane
Allen. Three days later we back at Bimini, a great place for snorkling.
