Little Farmers Cay throws an annual Festival called the 5 Fs. The First Friday in February Farmers Cay Festival. The highlight is the Class C regatta featuring 10 boats skippered by talented sailors and a set of rules that differ from those we race under in Traverse City. The wind was between 15 and 20, spirits were high and the light was good.

We stayed at Norman's Cay for a couple of days visiting McDuff's for lunch and Carlos Lehder's Volcano house pictured here. The next two shots are also on Norman's of the far eastern shore and the inner harbor. The last two images are on a small islet near Cambridge where a couple dozen cruisers feasted on a table built that day by several extremely talented carpenters from scrap driftwood found on the beach.
The boat stopped in Nassau long enough for Annie to rejoin the team of Dietrich and Calliope. Unfortunately the stay was lengthened by an unexpected mechanical issue that was expertly fixed by Deco and his most able assistant.
Among the historical architecture in Nassau including three forts that have been restored is this ancient gun emplacement on Potter's Cay nestled between the mail boats and fishing fleet.
