We wanted to get on the leeward side of the islands for better anchorages so we headed to Spanish Wells for our first stop. We didn’t quite make it that far on our first night though. The sun was setting as we were approaching Egg Island. We found a nice cove on the Eastern side of the island to set anchor at night and slept peacefully rocking to sleep. The next day we were up early so we could secure a good spot near the channel entrance to Spanish Wells. Spanish Wells is a good sized Bahamas town. They have haul out services, marine stores, grocery, and plenty of restaurants to check out. You can even get a good workout going up and down the hill. We stayed for a few days exploring and stocking up the boat.
Once we were ready for our next short jaunt we headed down to Current Cut. This place is aptly named. When the tide shifts the current will be running several knots. It becomes some good rapids if you have a good kayak or white water raft it would be a good time. We decided to hang out there for another couple days enjoying the seclusion, and watching the tides so our trip through wouldn’t be too rough. We really enjoyed hanging out around Current Cut but one of our best anchorages by far was just another day sail away.
