Lighthouse Yacht Club Andros

Does anyone know if Lighthouse YC marina in Fresh Creek is open? Have heard conflicting reports. If closed, what are the options for stopping there? (don’t need any services) thx

Thanksgiving at Rosie’s Place

Rather than stopping at great sale we decided to go to grand cay and rosie’s place. It happened to be thanksgiving so we signed up for their turkey dinner. It’s a wonderful thing when something exceeds your expectation, but this dinner truly did. Thick slices of turkey, baked ham, stuffing, cranberry, conch fritters, crab salad, cheese cake, the list just goes on. All this for $15!  We’ll definetly be back.

Turks and Caicos Marinas Report

We have finally been able to get in touch with the marinas in the Turks and Caicos (mainly Providenciales). Hurricane Irma did some damage but most are recovering and back in operation. Here’s what we found:

Blue Haven: The floating docks were greatly damaged. There is no power or water on the docks currently. They are able to pump fuel and have limited dockage. There is minor shoaling in the channel and they will pilot boats in. The controlling depth is reported to be 10 feet.

Caicos Marina and Shipyard: We weren’t able to speak to anyone there because they are still without electricity and phone service. The report we received was that there was unknown damage to the docks, but it is believed that the channel into the marina is still accessible.

Southside Marina: They fared the best as they were small and better protected. The docks are open. They have electricity and fuel and other normal services. They channel has been re-marked with little change.

Turtle Cove Marina: They had extensive damage to their docks, but they have over half of their docks are back in service now. They will still pilot yachts into the marina. Channel depth has changed little.

The waypoints on the charts still mark the proper approach to the channels. We have been told that the routes in have changed little. The area has been receiving several transient boats recently.

We will continue to update you as we get more information.

I saw the post about west end, but they are a year old.

Anyone heading there next month?

Most Bahamas marinas open

The marine recreational sector of the Bahamas’ tourism industry is up and open for business. Most of the member marinas of the Association of Bahamas Marinas (ABM) are reporting no damage from hurricane Irma and are open and ready for business.

“This hurricane caused great damage throughout the region and the southern Bahamas,” says ABM President, Stephen Kappeler, “and we sympathize with the citizens of the islands that were so badly affected. We are also deeply concerned about the welfare of citizens of the state of Florida, whose lives have been so disrupted by hurricane Irma,” he said.

“However, we are greatly relieved that hurricane Irma by-passed so many of the islands in The Bahamas and spared most of our members from damage or dislocation,” said Kappeler.
