Hawksbill Cay, Sea Aquarium and Thunderball Grotto

March 14-16. We woke up fairly early and had breakfast before heading out onto the bank as we headed up to Hawksbill Cay. The wind was blowing out of the Northeast at 20 knots, and we made 7+ knots the entire sail. I sailed the whole way in 4 foot seas, loving every minute of …read more

Into the Blue

March 12 & 13. I’ve been reading Greg & Duwan’s blog for 3 years, and talked to them at length about their sailing adventures. We were neighbors in Cabbagetown and when I heard about their leap into the unknown, I was hooked. They gave me an open invitation to join them whenever I could. The …read more

Karen’s Trip Part II

February 18 – February 20. From Cambridge Cay we went to O’Brien’s Cay to do some snorkeling. First stop was the Sea Aquarium. Then, after buzzing past Little Hall’s Pond Cay, we checked out a plane wreck. From there we went to stay for the night between Pipe Cay and Little Pipe Cay. In the …read more

Karen! Karen! Karen!

Into the Exumas, West Bay to Cambridge Cay

We didn’t go ashore, but Duwan was able to pirate an internet signal from a construction site there. Arg. I rowed over to take a peek at Cambridge Cay (also known as Little Bells Cay), about a …read more

Hawksbill Cay

January 11. Don’t you love a surprise? Like, when you are dinking along a coastline looking at the endless limestone overhangs, stopping at one beach after another to find only sand, palm trees, and rocks, but no trails inland. Just pushing a little further in the dinghy around the next bend, past the next beach, …read more

Shroud Cay

January 8 – January 10. There are only a few bare inches under the keel of our boat. We float in a depthless hole of water. Although the wind has picked up, Blue Wing doesn’t swing on her chain or even bob and weave much. It is a little eerie, but amazingly pleasant. Only one …read more
