Sailing Around The World

Clearance Town, Long Island Bahamas’

We sailed from George Town to Clearance Town which was a 53 nautical mile trip. We motored sailed the whole way and maintained 7.5 knots with the current. Upon entering the remote harbor the entrance was missing its channel markers and the mouth to the opening of harbor was a mile wide letting in all the swells from the Atlantic Ocean. We decided to dock the boat for the first times in 6 weeks. I have not seen my dad so happy! Anyway we took a shower and ate at the local restaurant and I had the best fish taco ever.

Location: 23deg 6.12min N, 74deg 57.60min W.

Thanks,

Jacques

    Since my last comment, I checked out Clarence Town on the internet..cool place; there is a blue hole (DXean’s Blue hole that is a popular diving site on the west side the island. Really looks awesome in aerial photos. A free dive depth record ws set there awhile back.

    Still haven’t seen any evidence of your lobster bags. I guess your time is pretty much filled just doing what has to be done on the boat.

  3. Yes, much of our time is spent working on Dragonsbane. I would have loved to check out the blue hole but due to the weather forecast we have a small window to get to the Caicos. We are going to sail 180 nautical miles straight there on the Atlantic side, hopefully before Tuesday when the wind shift for 4 days out of the south/ southeast.

    • Wish you where there I would have bought you some but no beer because its so expensive. A case of beer is 55 bucks here in the Bahamas for the local stuff.
