Tales of Our Voyage Christmas Sailing in the Exumas
Probably our most successful Christmas trip ever, sailing Ibis with a rented catamaran – No Expectations – through the Exuma chain to Staniel Cay Yacht Club and back up to Nassau. 12 amazing guests, 14 amazing days and nights.
From our first evening of wine tasting to the New Year fireworks over the Nassau bridges, we didn’t stop laughing on this trip in the beautiful Bahamas. Challenging in many ways – shallow water sailing, few places to have a meal out, and some pretty strong currents – the Bahamas didn’t disappoint in it’s beauty and our guests made friendships that will last a lifetime.
We island hopped from one deserted white sand beach to another, trained the binoculars on Steven Spielberg’s superyacht, snorkelled in crystal clear water teeming with fish and into underwater grottoes made famous by 007! We feasted on Christmas Day, left our mark on a remote cairn, had wine flown in in the nose of a tiny plane, swam with pigs and sharks, and raised our glasses to bring in 2014!
