Tuesday June 8 – Wednesday June 9
The Islands are close together in this part of the ocean, so we do not have an early departure which is always a plus for me. We enjoy some papaya on deck before pulling up anchor and are underway by 9:30. Very light winds this morning, but we only have to go 17 miles so we are sailing at about 5 knots. By 10:30 we are passing Coopers Town on Little Abaco. Winds pick up a little as we are passing another private Island Ambergris Cay, looks like a nice house or two & beach & dock , must be nice to have your own Island here in the Bahamas. By 1 we are anchored just outside of Black Sound and the town of New Plymouth on Green Turtle Cay. First we take the dinghy into Black Sound with the portable depth finder just to verify the reported depth. Looks like we can get in, just one tricky part where we would have to be careful and at high tide it would not be a problem. We decide our anchorage is pretty convenient, and we have no need for a marina at this time so we will stay at anchor. Next we dinghy over to the “town” side of the Island, and they have several places to tie up at.
