Back to Mahi

Back to Mahi

Joe, Ethan and I flew out to Great Harbour Cay in the Berry Islands, Bahamas to start our third season aboard MAHI, our sailboat.

Home base is located in Northern California, so with a 6 year old in tow, it took a total of 5 flights over two days to be reunited with our sailboat home.

Southwest Airlines crew are always friendly, but the flight crew for one of our legs invited Ethan to sit in the pilot seat and gave him junior wings.  How wonderful is that?  Thanks, Southwest, for making our son’s day!

On day two we flew to Nassau, then caught a LeAir flight to Great Harbour Cay.  Our friend, Jay Campbell, picked us up and all our luggage, then Karen Campbell was so gracious to feed us spaghetti and ply us with drinks.  What special friends they are.

First order of business was to tighten our lines for Tropical Storm Philippe, who arrived in the middle of the night.   He moved through fast, bringing colder air to the Bahamas, which was still warm compared to California.

After Philippe, we worked to put our sails back on, full enclosure, remove hurricane lines, and unpack.  Of course, we had to visit the stunning beaches, too.

Next up- sail back to FLorida and organize our haul out and refit.
