The wind finally let up enough for us to attempt to go through Whale Passage. This was the only way to get to Green Turtle Cay and can be very dangerous with a strong NE wind. They get what is called a rage in the cut.

We finnaly made it to Leeward Marina in Green Turtle Cay. Stayed one night then moved onto a anchorage for one night then traveled 55 miles to Great Sale Cay. From there we traveled 60 miles to the West End to Stage our crossing to Fort Pierce tomorrow. The following pictures are from the last 4 days.

We have been in Marsh Harbor now since April 07. Windy as hell.

Got bored so we took a ferry over to Man of War Cay and toured around.
