January 22, 2005 The passage from Miami to Nassau was the first of what I hope will be many. We left No Name Harbor in Key Biscayne at 0630. The Gulf Stream was up at bit with waves in the 3-5 foot range. The wind was from the stearn most of the way. Sea Otter weathered all this quite nicely. We tacked down wind to smooth out the trip covering more distance than the other boats, but doing it quickly enough to keep up. There were in excess of 20 boats making the trip. The folks on Sea Dancer, Karen and Ron, set-up an informal nete and had a check in of sorts every hour. We played games in the early hours that made the watches go more quickly. We arrived in Nassau at about 0900 Saturday. It took a while to get checked in as the weather window was what quite a few boats were looking for to make the break to the Bahamas. There was a gathering of cruisers at the pool at 1700 hours with finger food so we could put faces to boat names, and those that have done this before, can catch up with old friends. We have been in Nassau one day, and already I'm itching to get back on the water and off to another place. Preferably some place less crowded, more leasurely, wet and warm. I'll try to keep this web site updated so check back. I'd like to hear from those that take the time to read this jibberish, so go ahead, contact me at; Britt Solomon SV Sea Otter
