We're STILL in Port Lucaya, Freeport. The huge Northerly that blasted through over the past few days still has the seas up 8-10ft. Breezes are 20+ out of the East. If a few days, the winds will clock to Northeast and mellow to 10-15kts. The seas should be 6-8ft, which is not optimal, but doable. So tonight, we are going to steam due East along the South shore of Grand Bahama Island, taking it all on the nose, but at sunrise we will then be able to sail due South in the mellowing Easterlies to Nassau...... Freeport has been nice, but it's a 2-3 days nice, not trapped for a week nice. Morale is still high, but Team Audax is getting antsy and ready to ramble....
