We ran south heading for Marsh Harbor and had a fantastic sail from the Whale into the ship channel and down the Sea of Abaco and into the Harbor entrance. Winds once again were on the beam, and we had a beautiful easy day of sailing. We have only run the engine a total of 9 hours since leaving Miami. This is incredible, as we have sailed every leg from Miami to Marsh Harbor, and most of it has been on a beam reach.
The Abacos have beautiful water, great islands, protected seas, and many destinations within a short day trip. "IT is BETTER in the Bahamas......
Here are a few sailing photos for today...
