Offshore Adventure Sailing

March & April, 2019: Sailing the Bahamas 

The Bahamas are one of the finest cruising grounds on the planet. Gin-clear water, amazing colors, glorious coral reefs, incredible sunrises and sunsets, welcoming people . . . There’s no better way to explore this area than by sailboat. We’re planning six legs: three that include offshore passages (1, 4, and 6,) and three that are primarily island hopping (2, 3, and 5.)

Cruise the Abacos Under Sail

7 days

Starting and ending at March Harbour, we’ll take seven days to explore the waters, islands, reefs, and settlements of the Abacos. This is a spectacular cruising ground. Steady trade winds, together with off lying reefs that block the ocean swells, make the sailing fantastic! We’ll have a lot of flexibility to sail, snorkel, meet locals, and socialize with other sailors as the crew desires. Among the many places we may visit are:

  • Hope Town, with its iconic lighthouse

  • Little Harbour, with its historic cave and Pete’s Pub

  • Green Turtle Cay, where British loyalists fled during the American Revolution ; and

  • Great Guana Cay, with its boat-building heritage

March 30 - April 6, 2019

From the Abacos to the Eleutheras

7 days; 100 nautical miles

This expedition offers both the thrill of an overnight offshore passage and the magic of cruising Bahamian cays. We’ll head south through the Sea of Abaco from Marsh Harbor, visiting iconic Abaco destinations like Hope Town and/or Little Harbor. When the weather is right and the crew is ready, we’ll jump offshore and sail south across the Northeast Providence Channel in water two and a half miles deep. After rounding Egg Island, we’ll seek out a quiet anchorage, perhaps off Royal Island. With our remaining time, we’ll explore the cays and sail the protected waters of the Northern Eleutheras before arriving at Spanish Wells.
