Post Rendezvous -

This year the free Barefoot Man Concert at Nippers on Great Guana Cay is 1 to 4 pm Friday April 5th. This will be his last concert at Nippers so it will be a big party and worth staying in the Abacos for a couple of weeks.  After the concert the Keltic Kat plans to head south to Eleuthera and down the Exuma Cays to George Town.  After the Family Islands Regatta at the end of April we would return to Abaco with stops at Long Island and Cat Island and Eleuthera.  This can all be done with day trips and there are some safe harbours for stopping along the way.  Every plan depends on the weather being suitable but usually April gets steady east winds.
