“The Rambler sailed eastward…

…from Island Harbour, and faced the tough Atlantic tides off the northeastern part of the island, before making the choppy journey past the cliffs of Harbour Ridge. Then it reached the treacherous seas off Captain’s Bay, only to drift into the narrow passage between Windward Point, the easternmost part of the island, and Scrub Island, a midseized cay to the east that still housed a dirt strip built as part of that obscure episode of World War II–the Destroyers-for-Bases Agreement.”
