Re: A cruising blog: Bahamas & beyond

Hi All; My wife & I did the trip with Oui Si (Yorktown 33). W@e didn't stop at DR but visited the DR later. (Met Bruce Van Sant while in Luperon--great guy & great book!)
I made good use of our Ham rig to get local info/ weather etc. throughout all the Caribbean.
Many cruisers get to Georgetown in the Bahamas & elect to stop there--some cruisers call this place "Chicken town" because of this. Enjoy it all guys/gals--life is too short to do otherwise!

Cool! As my boat (28' S2) is already in Marsh Harbor and I want to go further, maybe we could meet there and sail further. Nice to see someone else doing it on a smaller boat.

And there's a reason why Georgetown is called 'chicken Harbor'!

When I went south to the Keys in '10 I met up w/ a couple that were on a Vega also. They made it to the Bahamas.... Check out their web site (look at the '10) entries.

We should be in FL by the end of year and doing a jump beginning of Jan. Not sure how far we will get to be back by end of March. But, that's the exciting part :-)
