On February 25th, 2013 we departed Conception Island at 0615 bound for Rock Sound, Eleuthera approximately 95nm to the northwest. Winds were forecast to be 10-12 kts from the southeast which created near perfect spinnaker sailing conditions for us. We popped the chute within minutes of pulling up anchor and were off on a two day, daylight only passage. We had several options for an intermediate, overnight stop. First choice was ...

Must remember to avoid the opening night shows, as they consist only of a short opening number, introductions for the cruise director’s staff, and a preview of the cabaret acts … in this case, a rather mediocre comedian. (He had one good joke: "I did the Alaska cruise: 7 days, 3 nights.")
