While the wind settled overnight, as did the waves, the slow swell made Zanshin lie sideways to the waves and occasionally got the boat rocking enough to have me wake up and assume the “starfish” position. In the early morning hours the anchorage showed flat and calm waters but Katzenellenbogen was gone from her position. I found her on the other side of my boat in the far distance in the mooring field. Later, Stephen told me that a boat in front of them had broken their mooring and drifted, trailing the mooring line and mooring ball, onto their boat! Luckily it was only a light <thud> at sunrise and no damage occurred to either boat. I'm glad I dove on my mooring ball the day before, otherwise I might have gotten that bad one!
I didn't do much at all and was sneezing and sniffling much of the time before noon; I really hope it is an allergic reaction and not a cold - otherwise I won't be able to dive on Guadeloupe in the next couple of days! I got some more internet done, did the laundry and made some water. After lunch I headed ashore and walked around Charlestown for a while before returning to the boat, stopping at Katzenellenbogen for an hour on the way. We decided to head to Guadeloupe tomorrow as the winds look promising. If the winds still have a southerly component tomorrow we might go to Antigua or perhaps to Montserrat for a night instead before continuing onwards.
