Notes

09th June 2019; Arrived


07th June 2019; captain reports;

Update; Dodging rain squalls and still dealing with loads of seagrass in the props, but we are making way very nicely now that we are in the heart of the Gulfstream. Averaging around 7.5knots and looking to be in Annapolis Sunday sometime. Boat is doing well and the crew are wet but doing fine.


05th June 2019; Captain reports;

Finally got some wind! Motor sailing comfortably, making good progress towards our waypoints. Dealing with loads of sea grass which when caught on the props Sail drives slows us down considerably. Also spotted a couple whales breaching yesterday afternoon! Always an amazing sight. Boat and crew are doing well!


04th June 2019; Captain reports;

Update; No wind yet but making progress north! Had a successful fuel + water stop in the Bahamas, Engine + Saildrive checks went well. We believe that the stbd Eng will need an oil change by the time we make it back stateside. Other than than the boat and crew are doing good. Looking forward to getting in the Gulfstream to help push us north.


02nd June 2019; Captain reports;

Update; Making a very brief fuel stop at Bluff House Marinia in the Bahamas (Green Turtle Cay) ETA is 6-7 hours. Will fill up tanks and jerry cans. Do a small top of of food and make our way out of the Bahamas hopefully we’ll within 6 hours. Then heading towards Annapolis. Boat and Crew are both doing well! No unknown issues to report.
