We left Bimini and motored over to Cat Cay for lunch. From there we began the journey across the Banks. We let the wind and sails carry us along until sunset where we opted to just drop the hook where we were in the middle of a vast desert of shallow water.
About 2 am our pleasantness ended. The winds had settled and the tides shifted and suddenly Tropical Breeze was being hit by waves broadside. It happens and when it does the boat jerks about and is generally uncomfortable. We'll take more wind any day to avoid the rocking the absence of wind causes.
With our choices limited to stay and let the motion continue or move on, we opted to hoist the anchor and continue the trek across the Banks. We motored and motored and motored (and a little sailing when the wind shifted south enough) until we finally reached Chub Cay. We hid behind neighboring Mama Rhoda Rock for the evening for a pleasant nights rest.
But yet another wind shift was expected - and not in the direction which would enable us to get to Nassau. So instead we motored up towards the shallows of Frazer's Hog Cay and found a place right near a beach to drop the hook. We would hang out for the day in hopes of a wind shift that would take us to Nassau.
