Well we attempted to make passage towards the Exumas today with the first leg over Mackey Shoals. 6 hrs later and only made 14 1/2 miles. Average 3.4 kts with 2-4 ft seas and 18 kts on the nose.
Then just as cell service fades, a twitter blip about a depression forming off the Bahamas. An hour of trying to find out how close, and I opted to pull the plug and return to Bimini.
Still not happy with weather. The blurb still sits out there, so will have to see, but As anyone can tell you, I will always err on the side of caution.
So we wait a couple of days and try it again.
