Hi all: While in the Bahamas
during January and February we observed a Voyage Yacht of about 40 to 50 feet pull up and drop the anchor
in the anchorage just west of Fort Montague. I was surprised to see a young lady doing everything by herself and even more surprised to see she was alone on the vessel with 2 very young daughters whom she called "her team." A couple days later, with a few waves and pointing of an arm, I helped her navigate to a position just off Rose Island where she dropped anchor
and took her team ashore. Later that evening the wind
came up and the yacht dragged the anchor towards the island and after a couple of attemps and a bit of struggling, she accepted my offer to help and another fellow from on the island and myself helped get her hooked and I took a dive light and had a swim on her anchor to make sure she was safe to which one of the team exclaimed "Look Mommie, he has an underwater torch!" We chatted the next day when she explained that they had purchased the vessel in Fort Lauderdale
and she had single
handed this far, with some help from the team, and was going on to George Town to meet her husband. I was impressed with her fortitude and easy going outlook. Her and my wife are the two extremes I think.
I would very much like to know that she made it to her destination
all well and secondly, we would like to stay in touch with them if at all possible.
If anyone knows how to contact them or saw them in the Exumas
all well then please reply or pm or email
