Bahamas 2017: Georgetown

Bahamas: Georgetown Exuma

24 Febr to 17th March 2017

Early the morning of 24th February we arrived at Georgetown after a passage of 240nm from Acklins. It took us 45hours after sitting out bad weather on the windward of Long Island.


We anchored closely to Rat Catcher with Peace & Plenty Hotel visible from our anchorage.


After settling in we were invited for Lobster muffins on Rat Catcher.  It was a happy morning spending on catch up that happened the previous few months.

A group of us (Rat Catcher, Vagabund and Joda) walked the trail over to the windward side of Stocking Island and on the ridge back to Chat’n Chill beach.

I found a new friend in Danielle.


After the long walk we enjoyed a swim in the water before the last stretch to Chat’n Chill beach.


On Flip Flop Beach we held another successful braai with Andre and Allison showing the South African “BBQ”.

Golf on the beach

Fun 9 holes of golf at Monument Beach, Stocking Island, Exumas, Bahamas

You play with only one club till you get the ball on the "green".


The 9th hole. You must chip your ball into the designated green (marked with moat), then you may stand where your ball lies inside the moat, and "hand toss" your ball into the crate to complete the hole. Each toss count as a stroke as well.


The 6th hole. Next to the water is the green with a group of players on the next tee.


The men play from the tees between the coconuts and the woman from the conch shells.

A braai day was held on Flip Flop Beach where the SA boats showed the yanks to cook some meat.
