Pictures – Little Inagua through Georgetown

DSC_1126 Approaching Little Inagua – wing-on-wing with the genoa poled out
DSC_1118 Mahi caught on the way to Little Inagua from Turks & Caicos.  This guy hopped off the deck after the first gaffing… but we got him on the second try.
DSC_1133 Calypso at anchor in Little Inagua
DSC_1158 Underway to Hogsty from Little Inagua.  Sailing wing-on-wing with genoa poled out – and occasionally surfing.
DSC_1169 NW Cay at Hogsty, with stone beacon, and light (works!).  The cay is tiny… just a couple hundred yards long. Not much protection to anchor here.
DSC_1197 Wrecked liberty ship at Hogsty Reef
DSC_1198 Wrecked small freight boat “Lady Eagle” at Hogsty Reef.
DSC_1209 Beachcombing on SW Cay ay Hogsty, with Lady Eagle in the background.  Amazing shelling here.
DSC_1230 Castle Island, with lighthouse (works!), wrecked coastal freighter (definitely does not work), and Calypso (still working, for now).  Neat spot – but need calm weather to stay here.
DSC_1250 Delectable Bay, bight of Acklins.  Pretty desolate and rocky.
DSC_1261 Albert Town, Long Cay, Crooked
DSC_1330 French Wells, Crooked
DSC_1351 Bird Rock lighthouse, Crooked (works!)
DSC_1354 Mahi caught on the way from Crooked to Long Island
DSC_1387 Dean’s Blue Hole, Long Island.  The world free dive championships were being held there.  The hole goes down to 660 ft.  The free divers reach 300+ ft.
DSC_1406 Gordons, Long Island.  Wrecked Bahamian fishing smack.
DSC_1417 Calypso anchored in Dollar Harbour, Long Island.

Family Island Regatta – Class A sloop “Anna Nicole”.  Jeremy crewed with these guys on Friday and Sat.  Not a very competitive boat, but you can only get so serious on a big pink boat reportedly previously owned by Anna Nicole Smith…

    Way to go, Calypso! Maddie’s photo in Cruising World is wonderful…hope the rest of the family isn’t jealous. Let us know when to expect your return; Jackson Creek’s channel has gotten so thin you may need dolphin escorts.
