Miranda Feels the Finish is near

I can see the loom of Guadeloupe and Antigua! This is a good sign. Starlit night interspered with the occasional squall cloud. There is an extraordinary amount of weed - I have had to stop the boat and back down countless times. Best done in a lull, but sometimes there is no choice in the matter once the boat becomes unsteerable...
I had to make a detour around a couple of those bloody fishing hazards to navigation - assuming they are actually where they are supposed to be.
Time to get some sleep before tackling the west side of Guadeloupe and locating the Basse Terre buoy, a compulsory mark of thec ourse, and usually an area with zero wind, being in the lee of a a large volcano.
