Secluded Anchorage

March , 29, 2020. Home for the past few days and next two is this beautiful secluded anchorage near Hetty’s Land on Great Iguana Cay. Another of nature’s gems in the Exuma Islands.

The Natural Beauty of Great Iguana Cay

I am anchored just south of the point called Hetty’s Land on Great Iguana Cay. There are only two hulls in this stunningly beautiful little bay…and both belong to Oh!. It is so quiet here, the only sounds are the breeze in the rigging, waves gently lapping at the hulls and some soft music playing. […]

Boat stuff

As the world confronts the Covid19 pandemic and daily life becomes more challenging for so many, there are places where life goes on unscathed. Hopefully once this runs its course, some of you may be able join Oh! to experience some of the gems of the natural world around us. So rather than add to […]

Bitter Iguana Cay

If you have to spend some time isolating yourself from the world at large, and a teeny, tiny little germ called Covid19, Bitter Iguana Cay would be very high on the list of amazing places to isolate are. It is mid-March and the beginning of the best time of the year to be in the […]

The Coffee Crisis

In the big scheme of life they are irrelevant, just one more moment out of the 34,160,000 – 53,611,000 moments I will likely have in my expected lifetime…give or take a million or two and if you measure a moment as “a minute”. Multiply the above by 60 if you feel a moment is better […]

The Elusive Green Flash

Some days everything just seems to be well…perfect. Today was one of those days. It started at Allen Cays one of my favorite anchorages in the Exuma Islands of the Bahamas. A small horseshoe  shaped bay that only fits one or two shallow draft boats. The water is crystal clear with a soft white sand […]

The Sounds of Silence

Sometimes everything just seems to be…well, weird. Tonight that is how it feels and sounds in Nassau harbour…just plain weird. There is an almost eerie silence. None of the usual competition of sound waves all simultaneously vying to rattle your eardrums. No singing of the wind in the rigging, or waves slapping the hulls from […]

Old Fort Bay revisited.

It has been 10 months since Oh! visited this beautiful bay and beach on the west end of New Providence Island. Not much has changed, it is still a beautiful spot to get away from Nassau. Even as the Coronavirus pandemic has tourists becoming endangered species in Nassau as the giant cruise ships vanish, it […]

Cruising in the BVI

Oh!’s stay in the BVI was short this season. Only 16 days. However, it has been a fabulous time meeting other cruisers, enjoying time with my guests on Oh!, and watching them gain confidence with each passing day. Tacking up wind on a Catamaran? Yes, we do it all the time with Oh! As shown […]

A Passage From Martinique to the BVI’s

Oh! has been in the BVI’s now for 11 days and it has been a whirl wind of activity, new friends, guests and cruising in a true boating paradise. The passage from Martinique was a lot of fun. Andy ( who sailed on Oh! from Norfolk to Bermuda in November) returned to spend a few […]
