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.

Sir Robin's In The Pink on Grey Power, finished third!

Sir Robin Knox-Johnston finishes third in Rhum Class in La Route du Rhum-Destination Guadeloupe Solo Transatlantic Race. Hours from the finish line, when he was locked in a tense final battle with Italian course record holder for his class Andrea Mura, doing all he could to steal second, Britain's Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, 75, pronounced that he would be simply 'ecstatic' if he were to finish third in the Rhum Class of La Route du Rhum-Destination Guadeloupe, the 3542 miles solo race from Saint-Malo, France to Guadeloupe in the French West Indies.
