Solo Passage Notes, Nassau to Annapolis – Part 2

Sunday June 2nd By morning the winds were down to 5-8 kts and forecast to go to zero around noon. As the seas quickly flattened out it became a perfect day for the sport fishing boats to come out from North Carolina. Oh! passed several dozen boats that had come out to fish for the […]

Solo Passage Notes, Nassau to Annapolis – Part 1

Monday May 27th, 2019 We had been waiting for over a week for Ted’s Swedish crew mate Josefin to get a US Visa processed. It was 9 am and she had just received notice it had arrived. Within a few minutes Stet and Oh! weighed anchors, departed our beautiful bay and headed to Nassau as […]

The yacht yard

Of all the boat yards I have been in with Oh!, there is nowhere that compares to the Bert Jabin Yacht Yard that Oh! is now hauled out at for the summer. This place is incredibly clean, welcoming and so peaceful. The travel lift at the yard could just barely fit Oh!. At one point […]

Old Fort Bay, New Providence, Bahamas. May – 25th, 2019

If you need to spent some time in the Nassau area, old Fort Bay is tough to beat. The bay is shallow – only 1-3m in most places; has a number of fringing reefs and is sheltered from the prevailing easterly winds and swell. What makes it so magical is the fact that it is […]

May 23, 2019 West End of New Providence Island, Bahamas

I could hear them calling trying to get my attention, Ted and Josefin on Stet were excited! “They are back get your camera, Rod, Rod! Get your camera!” I knew instantly what they were referring to and scrambled to unplug the camera from its charging cable and grab my mask and fins. There was no […]

April 28, 2019 – An “enlightening” evening

Some days are just a whole lot of fun. They start with the usual calm seas and beautiful skies, a wonderful snorkel, walk along a deserted beach, paddle boarding and then a casual but delicious dinner of seared tuna, butternut squash, roasted potatoes, beets and fresh tomato slices with basil. Finish it off with a […]

April 22, 2019 Fun with Fauna

Just like Sebastian says in Walt Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”, the Bahamas are better “Under the Sea”, he even sang a great little tune about it. The Garden of Eden in the Bahamas is clearly in the water. Over the past four trips through the Bahamas we have seen so many great examples of this. […]

April 21st, Easter Sunday and the Bahama Blues.

Some days just start out perfect and get even more perfect – is that really possible? Well… apparently yes. After a relaxed motor sail in light SW winds from Georgetown to Rudder Cut Cay we were treated to a spectacular display of weather by Ma Nature. The approaching front from the NW was beautiful and […]

April 5, 2019 update “Chris”

On October 22nd, 2018 Oh! set sail from La Gomera Island in the western Canary Islands to start our journey home – wherever that is. After a brief discussion with “Christopher” about our planned route (he really didn’t say much of anything, truly a statue of few words), we set off on our Atlantic crossing. […]

Oh! Update March 1, 2019

Oh! Update March 1, 2019 Wow, time really flies, especially when it is filled with new adventures everyday. After a very successful crossing from Mindelo to Antigua, Oh! has now completed the Atlantic Circuit. Over the past 12 months Oh! Has visited a lot of great places, met wonderful people and shared much if it […]
