Getting to the Bahamas took us a bit longer than it would take someone with a motor. We left April 24th at 11pm and arrived in West End at 3pm on April 26th. The winds got light and the Gulf Stream was pushing harder than expected, so we took longer to make it there.
While the 10 hour journey took us a day and a half, the sunset on our first night there was worth it! It was a calm day, we went swimming, relaxed in the hammock, and then watched the sun paint the horizon a glorious orange.
This is what we were looking for when we set sail for the Bahamas, and we found it on our first day there.
