The White Squal
Posted: Fri, Jul 1, 2011
Location: Great Harbor, Peter Island
We left our anchor at 7:30 in the morning to sail to West End which is where we started at the beginning. We stopped to refill water on our boat. All the shipmates went to shore, I had some delicious bacon on shore and got some snacks. After we left West End we encountered some high seas. The wind speed was 35 knots. Even though we had to reef the main sail down to the second reef, and still managed to beat our fellow dive side boats to GHP (Great Harbour Peter Island). We dove the Fearless before entering the bay, the Fearless is a deed shipwreck. When we were coming into the bay a 35 knot squal hit. It took us a while to get anchored. Now we are sitting in the bay.
