11th - 13th May

We had a great sail from Galaxidhi no engine, 2 reefs in the main and an almost full genoa. The sun was shining we were in shorts and t shirts and life was great! The wind was on the nose as usual but as we had a shortish distance to go we decided some proper sailing was required.

Wiz and Watson both took turns on the helm and I believe really enjoyed this rather rare chance to get some real sailing in!! We rounded up into the bay at 1430 lowered the sails and found a spot along side the outer mole of this rather dilapidated place! Fortunately we were there in good time as after 1700 12 flotilla yachts arrived and occupied all the remaining spaces. We had a pleasant meal at one of the tavernas and W and W spent some time walking around the island. we left bright and early on Monday for the trip to Messolonghi some 40 miles due west with a dog's leg to the south to negotiate the Rion bridge.
