One Step Ahead of the Weather

After the prediction of an approaching front, we wanted to get the open water behind us before it got here. We started out today before 7:00 and made as directly as we could for Exuma. The morning was cloudy, but so far it’s been calm and very smooth cruising. We’ll see.

The whole day went well, and we made it all the way back to Exeuma with no trouble. The entire trip took about 12 hours, for a distance of more than 90 miles. It was a long and uneventful day. I ended up doing most of the navigation; a part of my campaign to learn all about this boat. Most of the time we just let the autopilot take us where we were going while we kept half an eye out for trouble.

We finally anchored in a harbor called Red Shank, a few miles from George Town. Charlie and Donna are fixing a fine fish dinner. My more humble role is to do the dishes afterwards.
