Diving like a pirate in the Bahamas

Last month, I walked the metaphorical plank and went diving for a long weekend in the Bahamas with my dive club. We boarded the Morning Star, one of three 60-foot sloops in Blackbeard's Cruises' scuba diving fleet, on Grand Bahama Island. The skies were partly cloudy and the air temperature warm, but unfortunately we were plagued with winds in excess of 20 knots for the entire trip—which would have been welcome, considering we were on a sailboat, but the conditions played havoc with our plans to relax and dive. The wind made for a rough three days at sea, and the diving conditions were less than perfect. Nevertheless, we made the best of it, like any good pirate, and had a fine time.
