We had an awsome sailing day to start our trip to the Bahamas. We were running at 7.5 kts down hawk’s channel when we caught a crab trap! It slowed up down to 5 kts. You can just see the “beast” being towed behind us. I cut the trap loose but still had the rope trailing under the boat. So, hours later, I had to go in and cut it loose from the prop. As it turned out, the rope had worked loose and I went swimming for nothing. We anchored in Angle fish creek to a great sunset… a real good start to our crossing.
|Diving to cut loose the rope.|
We crossed with two other boats and had a great crossing, The wind was a bit light but it was at a good angle for motor sailing. And we crossed the stream at record time and speed.

I’d forgot just how clear the water is in the Bahamas. We could be in 20 feet of water and clearly see the bottom. The water is a startling shade of light, clear blue with dark patches here and there that are the sea grass beds on the bottom. It’s delicious! Stay tuned for more!
