Sailing Nassau, Bahamas
The ABLE program has been sailing with Captain Ian for four-plus years now and he has served us well. Next year Captain Ian and the sailing vessel Bahama Star will be operating out of Nassau, in the Bahamas. This has been the summer cruising area for the last few years and Captain Ian knows the area well. There is a high potential for better sailing, better snorkeling, and better fishing. Day one will still be a long day, the same as it was sailing in the Keys, as the group will fly to Nassau and then sail to northern Exumas before dropping anchor for the night. We will spend most of the week in the Exumas; island hopping, swimming, snorkeling, fishing and possibly getting in a hike or two. Having more places where the crew can get off the boat is also an advantage of sailing in the Bahamas. The crew will be all on one boat, the Bahama Star, but everyone will have a bed and plenty of room. Don’t forget, the students are the crew and we will be raising the sails, hauling anchor, cooking, doing dishes, and swabbing the deck. This course is limited to eight students, so sign up early. No experience is necessary; you do not need to know how to swim.
