Our summer migration has started. We got underway from Cape Eleuthera Marina at 10AM, and since then have been making our way across the Bahama Bank. By dark, we will be back in the open ocean headed north. So far the sailing is easy and comfortable.
This is the first ocean passage we are making with two additional crew onboard, I am really looking forward to the extra sleep! Our weather forecast looks excellent. The only routing decision I have to make is when to head west and pick up the Gulf Stream. Sometime in the morning I’ll be making that choice.
