Snaggle Tooth Sailing - Again!

snaggle tooth sailing in the bahamas with jib and mizzen no main
Jib unfurled, mizzen hoisted.  Left main down as at that point
of sail, the jib acted as a wind shadow.
What is snaggletooth sailing?  It’s when we unfurl our jib and hoist our mizzen sail, leaving a gap – a snaggle tooth – between them.

The good news is, last year it was because we blew out two of our primary sails (click here to read about that misadventure), our jib and our main, and were forced to rely on our backup jib and tiny mizzen sail, with a motor that was unsafe to run for extended periods.


This time it’s by choice!

Feb 24, 2014. BAHAMAS. Prescheduled from  Black Point, Great Guana Cay, Exumas (N24.10.937  W.76.24.291). By the time you read this, we'll be anchored at  a TBD isolated harbor further South on Great Guana Cay (no internet).
Quiescence, on the other hand, was far less sedate.
They blew past us like we were standing still.
