A Downwind Sail To The Berry Islands
Watch Video 62 here!
We weigh anchor and sail 52 miles dead downwind from Egg Island all the way to Hoffmans Cay in the Berry Islands.
This may be the shortest video we’ve ever made, but I hope the effort that went into it is apparent. Basically all the footage ended up being really windy and splashy which hurt the audio… so I made a music video out of it. 🙂
In this video you’ll see our 52ish mile crossing from Egg Island to Hoffmann’s Cay – or from Eleuthera to the Berry Islands. Not a bad trip. Dead downwind all the way. It’s times like these that I kinda wish we hadn’t ditched our whisker pole, but at the same time, I still don’t think it would have been worth hauling it around for the 2-3 times it would have come in handy.
Yes Sir – headed back to the States now. Bitter sweet and mixed emotions – especially for yours truly, Skipper Ben.
6.12.17 Headed to the Berry Islands today. We got up at 6:30 this morning and left Egg at 7. We made it to Hoffmans/Fowl Cay at 3:00. Molly and I took small amounts of motion sickness pills all day. It was a bumpy ride, but no one got sick! N 25*36.829 W 77*44.221
Ben and Molly went swimming, and I took a nap.
Also, on the way to the Berry Islands, Molly threw out her message in a bottle. Somewhere around
