Approaching Bahamas

2014-02-24 15:27Z

After six days of beating into the wind and weathering the ice cold of the Chesapeake plus a bad storm while in the Gulf Stream off Cape Hatteras we are are now almost in the Tropical weather systems. The wind is steady and in the range of 10 to 15 knots. The only unfortunate side is that it is still on the nose so we are still beating - making a good south direction but not towards our destination. We are running parallel to the Bahama coast. We will soon tack and head direct for Georgetown but that is half a day away.
This has been a long strip south but we are now warm and out of the American mainland clutches.
A magical moment on Malua
