We were at the South East tip of Eleuthera by 12:30. Then we had about 10 nm in open water to get to Little San Salvador. We were there by 2:30. We had contemplated stopping here for the night, but the only bay to anchor is a playground for cruise ships. We could see 2 cruise ships anchored off the island from quite a ways away. So we stayed with our original plan to go on to Cat Island.
We strayed off course a little to follow a shelf in the ocean. We were hoping to catch fish on the passage. We only caught 2 barracuda about on hour away from Cat Island. It’s exciting to have a bite and to pull them in, but disappointing when it’s barracuda. They carry ciguatera from eating reef fish.

We anchored at Bennet’s Harbor by 6:00. It is in the northern half of the island. We had
cocktails in the cockpit to unwind from the day at sea. We enjoyed fish tacos from left over wahoo.
