Bahamas Sail Fishers Bay & Marsh Harbour 18 to 22 April 2010
17 April motored through the notorious Whale Channel against a 1 to 1 1/2 meter swell to Fishers Bay on Great Guana Cay. Anchored in 3 meters at 26deg 39.9 N 077deg 07.1 W in grass covered sand. On second attempt anchor held very well.
Walked on the island and met up with several boats we had met on Green Turtle Cay.
Had Sunday lunch at Nippers on the ocean beach. Had a very enjoyable reunion with Marge & David on their beautiful Schooner Winfield Lash - last met hunkered down in Seal Bay in Maine last year sheltering from Hurricane Bill.
20 April drifted down to Marsh Harbour on Great Abaco Island on the Yankee and recommissioned the water maker ready for the long passages ahead. Anchored in good holding in 3.4 m at 26deg 32.7N 077deg 03.5W .
Had a good social time with Barbara and Eric of S/V Barberic and Mike & Barb of S/V Goose Bumps who we had met on Green Turtle Cay.
21/4 was a cloudy rainy day which cleared up towards the end of the afternoon in time for supper on Dutch Link.
