Sailing off of ManJack Cay

Sunday morning with a high tide Captain Thomas took them for a dinghy ride up in the mangroves and estuaries to see tons of turtles, some eagle rays and even a shark!

On the island of Manjack we know several people that have built houses on the island and we knew several people on their boat in the anchorage.  So when our friends heard we were going to go sailing that afternoon we had 10 people join us on board for the afternoon.  This was only the 2nd time our crew had hoisted sail so they wanted to look good in front of the guests.  They did a fantastic job and we were sailing full sailing going about 8 knots which was a thrill for everyone!
