Guadeloupe - Deshaies

23 March 2012
After five days in Dominica we made our way up to the north end of Guadeloupe. We arrived in Deshaies after a seven and half hour sail. We experienced some crazy winds along the way, but were ready for them this time. The anchorage had 35 knot winds blowing through the valley, which made anchoring a little tricky. We went ashore to check into customs and tour the village. When we arrived we found out that it was a holiday so most of the shops and other businesses were closed. It was really a charming looking town; we hope to make it back on our next visit. After having dinner on the boat, we were getting ready to head to bed when I noticed that our anchor had dragged. So in the dark, we picked up anchor and reset it a little further forwards. We turned on the anchor alarm and I took the first anchor watch, as we did not want to get woken-up by crashing into the boats behind us. Two hours passed and we had not moved, so at 1:00 am I decided to crawl into bed, with the timer set to wake me up in one hour. Marc and I took turns getting up throughout the night to make sure that we were not dragging a second time. The anchor held this time, but neither of us had a good night's sleep.
