Editor's Note: This is a newly carved-out marina, the first and only in the Crooked/Acklins District. For cruisers who have shied away from venturing this far away from supplies and services because of lack of secure anchorages, the marina offers new-found protection to allow exploration of the true Far Bahamas. Crossing the Crooked Island Passage is for the experienced, skilled seaman, but the rewards are going beyond the well-traveled routes to remoteness and even a step back in time.
Albert Town, Long Cay: Just did a dinghy run from our anchorage west side of Crooked Island about 2 nms north of French Wells Point to ‘investigate’ Albert Town, Long Cay.
Albert Town has suffered big time from the hurricane Joaquin in 2015 and basically there is nothing but ruined buildings left. Power has been restored but there are only 6 hardy folk clinging to a meagre existence on the whole of the island. No bar, restaurant, BTC office, nothing and definitely not a cold beer to be had.
Editor's Note: A classic book about the area is The Out Island Doctor by Evans Cottman, whose former home is on the north end of Crooked Island. A delight read to get the feel of The Bahamas when folks got around from island to island by sailboat and took their sheep and goats with them!
