Catamaran Solstice & Winter Solstice

We received an email this morning from the charter catamaran Solstice in the Bahamas. They are looking forward to the lunar eclipse.

Charter Catamaran Solstice - Sailing & Diving Yacht Charters in the Bahamas
Hello Bob & Sheila,
This will be a very exciting Winter Solstice onboard the Catamaran Solstice.  Early that morning we'll be witness to a total lunar eclipse!  This hasn't happened on the day of the Solstice in over 400 years.  Not only will it mark the beginning of our 7th year exploring the Exumas, but a true astronomical delight...  I expect we'll be anchored at Hawksbill or further south ?!

We've had a brilliant year that sailed by way too quickly.  Old guests, new guests, and old new guests came aboard for some truly memorable adventures.  Thanks to you we'll be around for another year.  Good times, good laughs, and good memories is what we're all about.  We've found new remote beaches, dive sites, and trails that'll keep us coming back for more.

Look forward to hearing from you soon and blessed healthy holidays to everyone,

Cliff & Liza
Catamaran Solstice
According to news reports, the lunar eclipse will begin tonight (Tuesday morning) at 1:33 a.m. EST (it will be at 2:33 a.m. AST for us folks in the islands)  and totality begins at 2:41 a.m. EST and lasts for 72 minutes.

They say that with the full moon high in the winter sky, the lunar eclipse will be visible from four continents, with the best views from North America and Central America if weather permits. I hope to witness this event because the next time it falls on the Winter Solstice will be on December 21, 2094!!!

Liz & Cliff enjoy family charters and you can tell that kids enjoy them, too!
