Well finally we had to go, and were sad to say goodbye to Big Majors and the wonderful friend we have there. But ...time is tight and we need to be in the Grenadines by late June. Every piece of the next 6 weeks will be weather dependent and can happen quickly ...or very slowly, as we wait for decent weather. These coming passages are all into the south east, and that is where the weather and winds come from at this time of the year. Crashing and bashing directly into 2m seas with 20- 25 knots is not pretty.
But for now, we have had a decent window and did the 180nm overnight to Acklins fairly comfortably. Not much happening in Acklins, but the beach is pretty and did a quick snorkel off a very nice reef just outside the bay.
Next stop will be Mayaguana – the last island of the Bahamas, and then on to the Turks & Caicos islands.
