|Chubb Cay, Berry Islands|
Our 45 mile run from Mackie Shoals to Chubb Cay in the Berry Islands was pretty uneventful. We started with all sails up and motor at about 60% and stayed that way all day long. There was more boat traffic and it was amazing to see the big yachts towing their full-sized fishing boats behind them. It was incredible to watch our depth sounder go from 12 feet to --- as it couldn't read the 800 foot depths of the Northwest Providence Channel. Chubb Cay took a direct hit from Hurricane Matthew and the entrance to the harbor is still chained off. We arrived at the anchorage on the west end of Chubb Cay at about 5:00, nine hours after leaving Mackie Shoals. We dropped our anchor on the west side of the channel in 10 feet of water. We were tired, but managed a hot tuna casserole and blueberry muffins for dinner. Mike took a "shower" in the water and serenaded us with a conch song at sunset followed again by Amazing Grace. We took a couple of post card pictures of Island Tyme with the sun setting behind it.
By 8:00 all three boats were gently rocking their passengers into a peaceful sleep. We planned on leaving the next morning for West Bay on New Providence.
