17.25 15:58.9N 61:43.4W FWE. Arrived Riviere Sens anchorage outside marina
after long and uneventful day at sea during which I saw nothing but one
other yacht - a catermaran and the island of Montserrat which I passed
some 3.5 miles to Port. The island suffered a volcanic eruption some years
ago when it was evacuated and which is still very evident. The south of
the island where the population had been mainly centred is still
Two other boats ( both cats ) on the anchorage, one Canadian, one Belgian.
Cannot raise the marina on the radio to see if there is room inside, given
its small size. Hey ho. Looks like I'm out here for the night. Too tired
to drop tender etc so no going ashore tonight; had visualised getting into
marina and a meal ashore. Not to be.
