The wind continued to veer around to the east and built a little, so we reefed the main and sailed on down toward Lynyard Cay. We had hopes of stopping at Sandy Cay to snorkel, but it was a little too “sporty” – so we opted to postpone until the next day. We had a fast sail and made it to our anchorage before lunch. Kaleb made nachos for lunch that were a hit, then we set to explore Little Harbour. Here we found a foundry that makes bronze sculptures, a restaurant on the beach and a cave. The ride back was a little on the wet side, and that inspired many to go for a late afternoon swim. Mr. Cramer and I spent a little time practicing with the ROV on loan from the St. George’s marine biology program (thanks Dr. Matarese!). Kaleb and Biz made jambalaya and kale salad for dinner, they were both quite good.
This morning we sailed off the anchor under jib alone. Chyra and Katherine split helm duties and we sailed up to anchor in the lee of a small island with a sandy beach in the Pelican Cay Land and Sea Park. We made a trip over to snorkel an amazing reef then stopped at the beach to harvest a coconut. Back on board we set sail and got underway to points north. Roberto just put out lunch. Hadley, Kaleb and Chyra are on watch enjoying a nice sail in beautiful conditions. Biz, Roberto, Ava and Katherine will take over the watch shortly, as we tack our way up toward Man-O-War Cay.
