Message in a Bottle by Cole

A few days ago I put a message in a bottle on a crossing from Norman’s Cay in the Exumas to the Eleutheras.

Me with the message in a bottle I made.

I threw my bottle out to sea.

In less than a week, I received an email from a girl on a yacht.  My message had been found!

I released the message half way from Norman’s Cay to Eleuthera and it drifted 17 nautical miles to a beach at Hawksbill Cay.  On the picture below the straight line is the course we took our boat on.  The dotted line is where the bottle must have drifted. chart bottleIt was really cool to know that someone found my message.  I’ll probably send out another message on one of our other crossings.  I hope someone finds my next one too!
