This May Be The Day

The wind has eased and hopefully the waves. Two sailboats just left and I'm pretty sure they are heading to the Whale Cay Passage. We will listen for their reports on the VHF radio and probably head that way shortly. Unfortunately the tide is opposite of what it should be. An outgoing tide against the east wind and waves coming in, makes the waves larger. However, if we wait too long for the tide to change, it gives us less time to get through to a safe anchorage with another cold front and high winds on our tail. The days are too short.

More from "the other side"...hopefully!
