  • Sailing Eleuthera – Hatchet Bay, Governor’s Harbour, Rock Sound

    Sailing Eleuthera – Hatchet Bay, Governor’s Harbour, Rock Sound

    Sailing Eleuthera was never in our plans. It just happened. That’s sailing of course. Mother nature’s plans always trump our plans. And when the winds changed speed and direction, we said to ourselves, “Great! Now we can travel in the Eleuthera banks and see all the places we missed last spring!!” Sailing Eleuthera Part 1…

  • Bluewater Sailing in the Bahamas

    Bluewater Sailing in the Bahamas

    Most people think of bluewater sailing as a crossing of the Atlantic Ocean or a 30 day hop across the Pacific Ocean. However, we’ve found some gorgeous bluewater sailing, with no land in sight, right here in the Bahamas. Yes, it’s not 10 days at sea. But it’s all her power and beauty gliding under…

    It’s island hopping time baby!!! We’re leaving Stocking Island and the George Town area to head north for a deeper taste of the Exumas.

  • Black Cay Exumas, Quick Sail to a Tiny Island

    Black Cay Exumas, Quick Sail to a Tiny Island

    Sailing to the tiny island of Black Cay Exumas had its little challenging cut, the swelly anchorage, and the thunderstorms. But it was beautiful – both the sail and the beach! Black Cay is a tiny island off of Grand Exuma and held a surprising little surprise at the top. IN THIS EPISODE: Black Cay…

  • How We Repaired Fiberglass Using Underwater Epoxy

    How We Repaired Fiberglass Using Underwater Epoxy

    A few weeks back, we shared an incident in Dotham Cut where the anchor wrapped around the prop. As a result, our Sailboat Cadence received some minor fiberglass damage on the shaft strut. With no haulouts or service facilities near our location in the Bahamas, we had to find a solution. Thankfully, we had underwater…

  • Eating Turtles in Crab Cay, Exumas

    Eating Turtles in Crab Cay, Exumas

    When they say, “Let’s go eat turtles in Crab Cay,” you probably don’t just jump and respond, “Okay, I’m in!” But it was our idea to have turtles, so we couldn’t back out on our own plan. And it was delish! Crab Cay is in Elizabeth Harbor (Stocking Harbour), and it’s a cozy little anchorage.…

  • George Town Bahamas: Why We Were So Wrong About Coming Here

    George Town Bahamas: Why We Were So Wrong About Coming Here

    George Town, Exumas, Bahamas is cruiser nation – the place to visit if you travel on a sailboat. However, our early impressions (because of word of mouth) left us not wanting to go here. And that’s a lesson we’ve had to learn – go where we want to go regardless of the opinions of others.…

  • Nassau Bahamas – Too Unsafe? Too Touristy?

    Nassau Bahamas – Too Unsafe? Too Touristy?

    We’ve heard time and again that Nassau is unsafe or too touristy for the likes of cruisers who travel on sailboats. We’ve heard not to go there – there’s theft, violence, and too much tourism. So let’s see. In this episode, we take a stroll through Nassau, go through the neighborhoods, visit downtown, and look…

  • Sailing from Abaco to Eleuthera to New Providence

    Sailing from Abaco to Eleuthera to New Providence

    There’s a north front moving in, and we can use it to sail south from Abaco to Eleuthera. Or we could use it to sail from Abaco straight to New Providence. Why New Providence? Well, we have an orthodontist visit to make, and the weather is supposed to turn ugly, so we need to beat…

  • The Dangerous Whale Cay Cut, Barracuda, and Hope Town Sunset

    The Dangerous Whale Cay Cut, Barracuda, and Hope Town Sunset

    The charts are clear – Whale Cay Cut is dangerous and should only be crossed in less than moderate swell. So we waited for the storms to clear and winds subsided to a forecasted 5-10 knots. However, when the ocean meets the shoreline, the winds are always stronger, so we experienced 10-14 knots and had…

  • Welcome to Green Turtle Cay

    Welcome to Green Turtle Cay

    Wow, this town is pure Bahamas – New Plymouth Settlement, Pineapple Bar and Grill, narrow roads, and colorful buildings! We’re so glad to have sailed here, and we’re excited to share Green Turtle Cay with you! After sailing the sea of Abaco (watch here), we couldn’t have asked for a better place to set foot…
