Disney looking at developing Egg Island

Disney is moving ahead with plans to build a cruise ship pier on Egg Island, North Eleuthera. Among many concerns is that Egg Island’s natural beauty and ecology will be destroyed if Disney proceeds with its plans to develop the island.

Click here for full article on Disney possibly developing on Egg Island as a new cruise ship destination.

There is an online change.org petition titled Save Egg Island (Bahamas)! Stop Disney Cruise Line! Preserve Egg Island! #saveeggisland.

Lost Dinghy! In need of help.

Hello cruisers,

This may be a long shot but we wanted to post to this community. We run marine science sailing Expeditions studying the Bahamas coral reefs each summer. We take early career college age scientists aboard a catamaran, exposing them to off-grid research. We collaborate with Institutions such as University of Miami (RSMAS), Penn State, U. Of Delaware, etc. We are now transiting from Key Largo to Eleuthera aboard No Expectations, a 47′ catamaran. Upon cruising the bank from Bimini to Chub Cay early morning on July 12th, our dinghy came loose. The winds were out of the SE so most likely our dinghy drifted to the NW. It’s a brand new West Marine  hypalon 350 RIB with a brand new Yamaha 20hp outboard. She is white with no registration numbers as its 2 days old. We were breaking it in upon crossing. This is a huge loss for our non-profit programs.

Our first stop is Eleuthera arriving July 16 to pickup our research Team. We are  then heading down the island chain to Georgetown by July 25. We will be in GT up until August 7, then heading back up island to Eleuthera.

If you find her can you radio No Expectations or email info@scienceundersail.org

Anyone who feels compelled to help us further we would be so grateful to  accept donations to assist us in acquiring a new dinghy. Your donation is a tax write-off. You can easily donate online through our secure fundraising website. You will receive an immediate tax write-off letter. Donate at http://bit.ly/donatesusie

Further, if anyone can help us out this summer and provide us with a spare dinghy for our Expeditions, you can either donate or lend us a comparable dinghy for the dates of July 18-August 18 we would be so grateful! Be in touch with us at the above email.

You can checkout our work at www.scienceundersail.org

 

Respectfully,

Jerah and Robin (co-founders)
