Wow, I can’t believe that a week from now we will back in Florida. The winter certainly has gone by fast. We are tying up loose ends here in Hope Town and making sure that all projects are completed. Tomorrow is the last cruising boat race, if the wind is not blowing too much. Dave plans on being on the Abaco Rage, while I will be on the race committee boat. We will probably drop our mooring lines Thursday or Friday and start heading north to Green Turtle Cay. We are hoping for benign weather and seas on Saturday, so that the Whale Cay Passage will be calm or at least passable. Our haul-out date at the storage yard is Tuesday morning.
I have been doing all the inside cleaning, polishing and organizing. Lists are written as to what we have on hand, what we need next season, and what items need to travel back and forth with us. Next, all the outside stainless rails and trim has to be scrubbed and a fresh coat of protective wax gets applied. Everything else related to summer storage, is done at the last minute.
This will be my last post from the Bahamas. Our internet service runs out tomorrow morning and I don’t know what will be available as we get to the islands further north. I’m already getting shaky from wifi withdrawal, and our signal hasn’t even disappeared.
Thanks for reading and I’ll update again from ‘the other side’, be it after Whale Cay if possible or back in Daytona!
