Shedding it in Shroud

We sailed down to Shroud Cay from Normans, it was short, 8 miles. We got to sail a nice bean each in 15 to 20 knots of wind, Cypraea got moving, up to 7 knots. This boat loves sailing with the wind. We arrived at Shroud Cay, and maneuvered past the mega yachts. We set the hook in 14 ft of crystal clear water, just outside the mooring field.

We dingied around and did some snorkelling, and had a restfull night.

The next day I had had enough, it was time for the locks to go. So before it got too windy I set up the foredeck and Jennie got out the shears. An impecible cruiser cut was the result, I hope you all can appreciate the oxymoron that "impeciple cruiser" anything is. The cut is a little rough, but Jennie says I look european.... Ummm Ok sweetheart.

Then we went for a dingy ride along the mangrove creeks that go from one side of the island to the other side, and saw tons of cool stuff; turtles, rays, fish, tourists..... We then went out to some coral heads for a snorkel and saw some pretty amazing fish. We dingied back and decided it was time to move south. So we headed to Hawksbill Cay 5 miles away.
