Spanish Cay to Green Turtle Cay, Abacos, Bahamas

January 30, 2007

We had a beautiful sail yesterday from Spanish Cay to Green Turtle Cay. The wind was blowing a steady 15-20 knots from the NNE and we had a great downwind run, averaging about 6 knots. We rigged the preventer for the main and the whisker pole for the jib, turned the autopilot on and enjoyed the trip. Lots of dolphins came swimming in our bow wake to everyone's excitement (except kitkat who remained fast asleep down below in the sun). We arrived at Green Turtle Cay in the late afternoon. The harbor is very protected so we put the hook down and went ashore for a walk on the beach.

Dolphins are good luck when you're out to sea!
Though, Kitkat - repeat after me "Fish are friends, not food." Well, at least this guy isn't...
