Bert and Betty take a taxi back to the airport. We had a wonderful visit.
We are now back in the states (Ft. Pierce, FL) and I will have another update tomorrow...cell phones now work!!!!!
The link to the left has been updated with our current position.
The races are over so we finally take off. Our intent was to go to Long Island, Exuma about 25 miles away. Well after pounding directly into the wind for about an hour and a half we decide that we have had enough and change our destination. We sail south (instead of motor east) to the end of Great Exuma and found this wonderful anchorage.
We meet up again with Seaman’s Elixir (Steve & Linda) while Betty & Bert are with us. Since they are both from Colorado they had much to talk about. – pictured here are Linda, me and Kenny from Mar Soleil – missed getting a picture of Kathy.
There is a huge following crowd – I believe there were actually more spectator boats than racing boats.
These folks take these races very seriously - many fly in from other islands to watch.
