Sailors Dre and the crew lift anchor near Georgetown, sailing off on SV Naida, a Hunter 34. A real-life sailing day unfolds.
In this video, we’ll be sailing the Bahamas Banks without any experience! We’ll be sailing from Nassau to Staniel Cay, and it’s sure to be an adventure!
The projects have finally ceased and adventure awaits! This week we get to reap the benefits of all the hard work we’ve put in as we set sail to the Bahamas.
Brett tries fishing again and although we’re transiting the “fishbowl of the Bahamas” he manages to catch us … seaweed!
After months of chasing a little bump in the neck all around the Bahamas, we finally have our answer. It isn’t what we wanted to hear.
Going back to the US so soon was never in the cards. But alas, the universe had other plans for us.
