Passage from North Florida to Bahamas
6th - 8th Dec 16
Crossing from St Augustine to Green Turtle Cay in Bahamas.We departed St Augustine at 7am Tuesday 6 December and arrived Thursday noon.
The Southern component to the wind lasted long enough to allow us to cross the Gulf Stream relatively peaceful. The final section of the crossing was with almost no wind and flat sea. We dropped the sails and motor the rest of the way to Green Turtle Cay. We enjoyed being offshore and not seeing land for a few days. Slowly finding our salty sea legs again.
