Interrupting my Bahamas travelogue with a status report: Got a good weather forecast to leave where we are now (Sat., 2/22/2014): GeorgeTown, Great Exuma, Bahamas. Today's the 1st sailboat race in the 34th annual GeorgeTown regatta, and there's plenty of action as the windward mark is about 300' away from The Fox. Big fun.
We raise anchor at 1st light tomorrow, 2/23. We'll sail to the E side of Long Island, Bahamas, then work our way SE & then SW heading for the Windward Passage between Cuba and Haiti. We'll sail directly to Porvenir in the San Blas islands in Panama. It's ~1000 mi. so we expect to be underway +/- 9 days. More later.
