We left Little Farmers Cay and sailed south on the Bahamas Bank, following the path recommended by C-Maps, through the reefs and bommies.

About 30 minutes before reaching Coakley Cay, our wind instrument stopped working, and we thought ‘Sods Law’, - something will always go wrong when least expected. However on arrival at Coakley Cay, another yacht was already anchored there, called Delphina. They called us on the VHF to tell us we had a Osprey sitting on our mast.

I waved my arms wildly and it ignored me, then I ran for my camera to get a few photos.
As we furled the Genoa, it did not like the sound and readied to fly off.

The Osprey circled Meshugga, as though looking to land again, and then flew off towards Coakley Cay and the other nearby Cays. Beautiful.
