BIMINI OR BUST
"Suddenly, the harbor came into view ahead through the narrow entrance. What we saw was a shock. The anchorage was tightly packed with boats of every description: sailboats, motor yachts, sportfishermen, runabouts, dinghies, native skiffs - it seemed that every boat owner in Miami had decided to spend the Fourth or July weekend in Bimini. Just then, the current was compressed at the harbor mouth, increasing its velocity to 3, maybe 4 knots. Autant was flung into Bimini Harbor. We cleared the trees, and the fresh 12-knot breeze instantly filled the sails. Into the chaotic mass of boats we flew, under full sail, at a total current-plus-sailing speed of 9 knots!"
