We jumped from Allans Pensacola to Manjack this morning – a 21 nautical mile run. Wind was from the south, so it was a bit of a beat, but a pleasant sail nonetheless. The forecast is for an extended period of southerly wind, which limits anchorage selection. Consequently we had to skip Powell Cay – but hope to check it out in the coming weeks before xmas. Manjack is another uninhabited cay. We have, however, entered the limits of charter boat navigation, as there were 3 Sunsail boats in the anchorage with us earlier today. The beach here on the NW end of Manjack is pretty prime. There were a couple small nurse sharks swimming in the very skinny water along the beach, with their dorsal fins breaking the water surface. The guides we have suggest that there are trails inland – we’ll explore more tomorrow.
