Sailing the Bahamas – 7 Days Under Quarantine Escape 34

Pinned down under quarantine in West Bay, New Providence Island, with the wind constantly blowing from the same direction for a week as we try to sail Spanish Wells, Northern Eleuthera and check in.

Spending time in the dingy searching around West Bay for Wifi and checking out Jaws Beach. Never expecting it to be this long before we’re able to check-in to the Bahamas I start to run out of provisions and moving the boat closer to Nygard Cay for a stronger signal.

The GRIBS are of the 7am surface forecast for each day.
