Heading south again

We left Black Point at noon on February 9th, and headed south to position ourselves for a jump outside to the Sound to head back down to George Town on the 10th.

It was a fast sail, in 15-20 knot winds at about 50 degrees, with full sails up. (Some might call that “tippy” sailing.)

We headed to Big Galliot Cay, which was just inside the cut we were planning to take early the next morning to go out to the Sound and head further south.

We found out that the Sorn crew (Chris, Shawn, and River) were anchored around the corner from us at Big Farmers Cay, so we suggested a beach meetup and dinghied over to meet them. Sorn is a trimaran, and Chris and Shawn had moved aboard with their 10 year old daughter River last year. Previously Chris and Shawn had another sailboat they lived on and sailed across oceans for 12 years. They had lots of great stories!

We enjoyed a beautiful sunset and some great conversation before heading back to get a full night’s sleep in prep for tomorrow’s longer sail.
