Yo ho ho!

Posted by on February 1, 2012

Yesterday on the Cruiser’s Net a boat requested GPS coordinates for the blue holes within the Bight of Old Robinson. These blue holes are infamous and somewhat undiscovered, so I was surprised when someone actually answered this request.  We quickly jumped on the radio and provided our email address to get the coordinates emailed to us.

When the email arrived, I was amazed, there was a map and coordinates provided to 7 of the reported 14 blue holes. I hesitate to post the pdf, but if you’re interested in seeing it, just email me.  The nice cruisers that provided the map simply asked that if we locate one of the undiscovered blue holes that we forward them the coordinates.

When I looked at the map, I sensed we were ready for an adventure. Admittedly, I just read Treasure Island (free on my Kindle) so my mind immediately ran to Long John Silver and Jim searching about for Captain Flint’s buried treasure. We’ve decided to hold a “treasure hunt” this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon at high tide.  We’re going to first try to find the 7 holes with coordinates and then locate some of the uncharted holes.

Here’s how you can follow along, we’ll be carrying our Spot tracker with us as we travel the Bight of Old Robinson.  We’ll leave the tracker on so you can see where we are, and if we actually locate a blue hole we’ll hit our custom message button to let you know.  If you’re interested in this, simply check in periodically on our Where are we? page.  We’ll post pictures when we return.

High tide is around 3:00 p.m. on both days, so check out that page in the afternoon if you’re interested, consider it a webventure!
