Flag of Bahamas  , Exuma,
Saturday, March 17, 2012

We left Black Point at 7 a.m. and sailed down the shallow Bahama banks for 2 hours and then we reached Galliot Cut, a narrow passage that opens up to the Atlantic waters. There are numerous cuts along the string of Exumas and in order to get to Georgetown we have to go into the Atlantic. We planned to arrive at this cut at slack low tide since ebb tide flows can build a wall of water here. Rather like a standstill tsunami. I double checked the waves through the binos and Den & I agreed it didn't look too bad. The wind had been blowing E-NE for days so there was a definite swell, at least 5-6 feet. Heading directly into them was tricky but Denny did just fine and we went to course and put the main and jib up. What a ride we had. We entered the harbor at 3:30 pm and dropped the hook. We are pretty pooped. The boat got a good salt water bath and so did we. We'll be here probably the whole week as the winds are supposed to die down by Saturday.
