We're in Nassau!
Chris here... I thought I'd put up a quick post. Kristen's parents are here, so we're going out in a few minutes. Anyway, we made it to Nassau. The passage was WONDERFUL - wind was around 10-12kts and at 35 degrees apparent (for those who don't know what this means, it means it was from the right direction) and the waves were 2 feet or under. It took us about 22 hours to make it here, and we kept a speed of about 5-6kts, under sail, almost the whole way. Last night from around 11pm until about 4am this morning we had to motor with the wind right on our nose, but we could sail the rest of the way, and it was beautiful, gentle, decently fast sailing. We actually had to slow down this morning so we wouldn't be here too early! We took lots of pictures, some video and have a few stories to tell, but they will have to wait for the next couple of days. We'll work on getting them up as fast as possible, but just know that we're safe, sound and happy.
