TCI's to the Dominican Republic

Marina Puerto Bahia, DR
We checked into South Side Marina to enjoy a great but far too short stay in the Turks and Caicos. Thanks for the hospitality Bob. Met up with Duane & June on "Sea Clearly". We shared a rental car to tour the island, go for a snorkel then have lunch at Ocean Reef Resort; a beautiful spot right on the beach. Nice lunch, great service! This  island has really "grown" since we were last here 12 years ago! The resorts are beautiful and it looks like they did it right!

We depart Friday after getting our "outbound" clearance. 15-20kts out of the NE so it was a bit "bumpy" crossing the banks but we were setting ourselves up for the overnight to the Dominican Republic. Checking with Chris Parker and WeatherBouy the upcoming forecast is another great opportunity to take action. After a night at anchor just west of South Caicos we are off Saturday am. The winds are light and other than a few squalls we have a smooth crossing often on glassy seas to Samana, Dominican Republic.
