West End, Grand Bahama Island
We're here. Not the funnest Gulf Stream crossing... winds out of the East, and us heading NorthEast. Basically steaming all night with the breeze and 4ft seas on the nose. Not fun. However, we did decide to crack off the breeze and head North for West End instead of continuing due East for Freeport... this allowed for some really enjoyable sailing... beam reach, 7kts boat speed, sunny and hot. Arrived in West End Grand Bahama Island today around 4pm. Customs no prob, my passport gets its first stamp, move Audax to a nearby anchorage, dinner in the cockpit, and I'm hittin' the rack. I'm TIRED. It was a long night, very little sleep. More to follow.... but we're here. We made it safely. Morale is high, but we are sleepy.
