Even after nearly four decades on the water, I am always keen to pick up a new trick - and happy to pass my knowledge on to anyone who wants to learn. I love to teach sailors of all ages to sail fast and efficiently, but also to do this responsibly and safely. Born in Germany, I learned sailing at the tender age of 13 on Dutch rivers. Later based in Berlin, I quickly ran out of water on the surrounding lakes, and started exploring the Baltic, casting off to Denmark, Finland and Russia. On my moving to New York in 2006 as photographer and author, I crewed and skippered regularly in races off City Island and in Rockport, MA. I love cruising the Atlantic, be it along the Eastern seaboard from Maine down to the Carolinas, or offshore over to Bermuda or the Bahamas. A Transatlantic is in planning. In my spare time I skipper a 30'' sloop on the Western Long Island Sound, and I sailed pretty much every drop of local water from Sheepshead Bay to Block Island.

Bahamas - Abaco Flotilla

Event Location: Bahamas, Marsh Harbor
Date: Sat Dec 29 5:00pm
Event Type: Sailing Vacation Flotilla
Contact: 18007776493 Nitzan
Day 1: Elbow Cay is the most well-known of the small colonial townships on the outer cays, since its famous 130-year-old lighthouse is visible for miles. Moorings can be reserved from Hope Town Marina, Captain Jack, or Harbors Edge. You can also come alongside Hope Town Marina or Lighthouse Marina to find, fuel, water, ice, and marina services. Great restaurants & bars can be accessed by dinghy – Cap’n Jack’s, Harbour’s Edge, and Hope Town Marina are your options. There are food markets, boutiques, and of course, the local dive shop. You can also visit the small but informative museum, then eat at one of the many restaurants that surround the harbor. If you’re having lunch at the Hope Town Harbor Lodge beachside pool and restaurant, you can snorkel off their beach before or after your meal. Day 2: About three miles south from the entrance to Hope Town in the White Sound, the Abaco Inn sits with its small stern-to docks. This is one of your best bets for dining out in Abaco. If those docks are full, check the nearby Sea Spray Marina – where you can also find fuel, ice, and water. They also have a small informal restaurant at the marina. The navigable waters of White Sound are dredged and narrow, so there are no moorings available and anchoring is not possible. Day 3: Tahiti Beach is a pleasant little lagoon anchorage with white sand beach and a grove of coconut palm trees protected from most winds except northerlies. Approximately two thirds of the way going south, you can anchor in the lee of Tilloo Cay just north of the Tilloo Bank. This is an open roadstead anchorage and therefore is exposed to all winds, especially westerly. It’s also a deserted island to explore, along with the wild shores on the east side. From Tilloo Cay, you can dinghy over to Cracker P’s restaurant & bar, where they serve lunch and dinner. Day 4: A daytime anchorage can be found on the west side of this Sandy Cay. This will provide dinghy access to the reefs on the east side of the cay, which is part of the Pelican Cays Sea Park. All coral and sea life is protected here. There are some small moorings for you to tie the dinghy to when diving or snorkeling on the reefs. This is a very beautiful underwater area but you should be experienced at this game as the area can be exposed to Atlantic weather at times and also has crosscurrents sometimes from the nearby North Bar Channel. Day 5: Little Harbour is protected from all points. Moorings are available from Pete’s Pub, or you can anchor. At mean low water there is only 3.5ft across the bar. If you arrive too early to carry your draft, you can anchor on the west side of Tom Curry’s Point and await the rise of the tide. If you need to, you can spend the night at anchor here. This anchorage is relatively well sheltered from most winds. Day 6: The historical township at Man-O-War Cay offers marina berths, moorings as well as anchorage sites. Man-O-War Marina is the best contact for berths and moorings. They are located right on the town’s harbor, but they can also be reserved for you in the Eastern Harbor (sometimes known as American Harbor). You cannot anchor in the main harbor due to the amount of congestion and private moorings already there. Day 7: Great Guana Cay has docking facilities in the bay facing southwest at the Grabbers Resort‘s small marina. With north and easterly winds, you can anchor in the bay, but do use two anchors, as the holding is soft and grassy. The bay tends to be exposed to any other winds and quickly becomes uncomfortable. If you use this anchorage, please leave room and be considerate of the small resident fishing boats that use moorings here. The better anchorage is just to the north of the resort anchoring behind Delia’s Cay. Here you have easy dinghy access to the Resort’s northern side jetty. Although the holding is better than in the settlement’s bay to the south, it is still advisable to use both your anchors here too. This cay also has a white sand beach stretching for 7 miles.
