After we were checked in, we had an early dinner and took off for the Berry Islands, about 85 nm from Cat Cay. (For estimating the amount of time a passage will take, we used 5.5 nm/hr, so about 15 hours for this one. The speed estimate is dependent on a number of variables—will we be under sail, motoring or, more likely motor-sailing? What is the wind speed and direction? Are currents with us or against us, with the wind or against it? Are we dealing with rough seas or calm waters?) Again, Michael and I took shifts (he 7-midnight, I midnight-4, he 4-arrival, about 9 am). Though we were tired, again, it was uneventful. And we enjoyed a beautiful sunset, too!
Ally has officially become Michael’s snorkeling buddy! They broke out the GoPro and started experimenting. I will spare you the raw footage and will post some video when we figure out how to edit! My hunter came home with three spiny lobsters!! We grilled the tails with butter and garlic…mmmmm!!
