Barb and I, on the good ship PTOLEMY, departed Fort Lauderdale in the early morning, January 31st, heading for the Bahamas 55 nautical mile west across the often 'challenging' Gulf Stream. This should have been a gentle calm crossing according to our weather guru Chris Parker. Sadly, it wasn't and he later apologized, first time he got it THAT wrong in the ten years that we have been using him.
Never mind that, we clear in formalities completed in North Bimini, then another 110nm run to the Berry Islands and to anchor off in Little Whale Cay. It was a long day, but we easily recovered, thanks to our lovely friends Peter and Erica on their beautiful island, Whale Cay. On day two Peter and Erica gave us an excellent tour of the Cay, then joined us on board Ptolemy for dinner whilst at anchor in the cut between Whale and Little Whale Cays.
First light, next morning and we were off again, another 110 nms south to Great Farmers Cay in the Exuma Islands, just in time for the Farmers Ca

In mid April, eight Horizon Power Catamaran owners participated in a week long Island hopping Rendezvous, from Staniel Cay all the way North to Highbourne Cay in the Bahamas.
The owners and their guests arrived at Staniel Cay from all over the US and Caribbean Islands, where they enjoyed a Welcome Rum Punch on the dock and were treated to a Welcome Dinner at the Yacht Club.

Everyone had a blast at Compass Cay. The Fresh Fish BBQ, Live Music and Rum Punch, set the scene for a wildly entertaining evening.

As the yachts departed and made their way towards Waderick Wells, some chose to spend the day fishing while others went diving, paddle boarding and kayaking.
