Hello from the Exumas!


The dingy riding the weather out in Nassau, Bahamas

Captain Dave was able to get a message out on Saturday to update us on the boat's travels:

Hello everyone!  The wind has finally moderated and the forecast into the upcoming week is for modest winds out of the north and east. Yesterday we had a few squalls, rain, and winds gusting mid and upper 20s.  We spent the night on the hook at Rose Island outside Nassau. 

Today, Saturday is the first day we have seen in a long time with moderate wind, beautiful and pleasant.  The wind is 14k out of the NE and we are on a beam reach sailing 7 knots, plus on our way to Norman Cay in the Exumas.  What a great day to be sailing!  The boat and crew are all doing well.  We expect to stay for a while in the North Exumas until we have to return to Nassau for flight connections with visiting friends and passengers.  Updates again soon, thanks for your love and support on our journey! 

Perfect sailing weather as Sea Angel heads out to explore the Exumas! 

The Sea Angel is sailing for a cause. Sea Mercy is a benevolent program developed for disaster and critical care needs for remote islanders. Sea Mercy is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) charity with a simple vision and mission to "stand in the gap" with a service delivery vessel, trained health care volunteers, support equipment, and critical care services as island nations develop their "outer island" health care infrastructure, when critical health care need opportunities are present, or when disasters occur. 

If Sea Angel's journey is valuable to you, we welcome you to consider donating on our behalf to Sea Mercy - they have several ways to get involved and are so grateful for your support. 

Sea Mercy's Corporate "We Care" Program is designed to help organizations attract and engage clients, vendors, and employees in the spirit of social responsibility and provide a wonderfully enriching partnership. There are several ways to participate with "We Care". Visit Sea Mercy's website for additional information. If you know of an organization or would like to involve yours, please share this information forward.
