Decca Channel to Green Cay - we have the world to ourselves
Date Wednesday 11 April 2012 and Thursday 12 April 2012
The chart may help give an idea where we are and our route passed the Decca Towers, disused but still good markers for a route that carries at least 4 metres at low water across to Green Cay which lies on the east side of the Tongue of the Ocean, the chart also shows precisely how the Tongue got its’ name.

So after a very gently day we arrived at Green Cay and found it completely

Thursday brought very little wind and at times complete calm so there was no guilty feeling about doing anything else than having a look at Green Cay from the dinghy, the odd swim and generally keep out of the sun during the middle of the day.
So here we sit in our own personal azure sea, until tomorrow, assuming that there is enough wind to sail.
