Michael and Susan left Florida in 2007 aboard their Westsail 43 INFINI to fullfill a dream of full time cruising.
1-4 Great Lameshur Bay
Yep, we made it. We were determined to get here, so went around the north and east sides of the island to arrive in this beautiful place. And...we sailed it, tacking across the Drake channel in beautiful conditions and enjoying the day. There's no anchoring here, so taking a mooring ball is mandatory. This is the first time we've dropped the boat hook attempting to grab the mooring line; trying to hold onto the line of the buoy as the current swings the boat isn't always that easy. But, that's the reason for the extendable boat hook - it floats. After retrieving it, the second try went smoothly and we actually looked like we knew what we were doing. There are lots of buoys but few boats here today. The snorkeling was good and the water crystal clear.
