Sailing Around The World

Almost To Bahamas

We are about 50 nautical miles from the West Bahamas coast but we are sailing about 150 more miles to Nassau. The wind is around 6kts but behind us and we are flying our spinnaker making about 5 kts. Its also warm here I have been wearing my shorts for the last 2 days and enjoying the weather.

Last night was a very cool night, there was no wind and the sea was flat as a pancake like glass. It was so cool because the sky was really clear and the stars where so bright that they reflected off the ocean surface. It made the boat seem as if it was floating through the ski and I no idea where the horizon was and where the ocean stopped. I sat back smoked a cigar and listened to some music and totally got lost in my thoughts, it was a perfect night!

Thanks,

Jacques
