DOCKED AT TURTLE COVE MARINA IN PROVIDENCIALES
SUNRISE AT PROVIDENCIALES: 6: 30 AM
SUNSET AT PROVIDENCIALES: 5:29 PM
Aha, finally no wind!!!
Sandi was at Quest shortly after 7:00 AM and we were off to board Hanco for a day of repositioning it back here at Turtle Cove Marina. You couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day on the water.
|HANCO IS BACK IN THE WATER AND READY TO TAKE OFF|
|SANDI AND DAN TENDING TO THE TENDER|
|JOHN HAPPY TO BE BACK IN THE HELM|
Due to the treacherous coral heads and shoals, the exits and entrances to the bays are accessed by often convoluted routes. We had to continue quite a way south after leaving the marina before we were able to head west. Then we had to give the western shore of the island a wide berth as we turned north. Once again we gave the rocky reef plenty of respect and went way north before turning east and making for Sellers Cut that would bring us inside the reef. Now comes the really convoluted trail that you must follow to reach Turtle Cove Marina. John had called for an escort as recommended but we were well on our way before he arrived to guide us into the marina. Nice job John! Hanco is now docked at her home for the next bit and John and Sandi were greeted by many old friends from years past.
|WE MADE IT INSIDE THE REEF SAFELY|
