We are heading out to the Berry Islands, a remote chain about 50 miles south of Grand Bahama Island. We will be there for a couple weeks, out of contact by email or snail mail. We will not be shipping again until we reach Nassau.

Departed Gun Cay 3:00 pm for Grand Bahama Island.

We thought it was going to be easy. The radio weather forcast claimed it would be easy. They lie!!!

We sailed north past Bimini enjoying ourselves in the light wind, steering with one toe. After nightfall, the wind picked up past thirty knots on our quarter (in of itself not too bad a thing). But then we got the snot knocked out of us by waves breaking on all sides. We made it into Bell Channel just before sunrise.
