170614  Passage from Fiscardo, Kefalonia to Sivota, Lefkas

Weather: Fine and sunny with moderate visibility. Winds NE 15kts DTG: 12.75nm

Crew: Frank and Jackie

11:00 Departed Fiscardo  quay mooring and head north on a course of 28 degrees from Kefalonia on a close reach with a SOG of around 7.5 kts in company of another yacht which we closed and overhauled as we head for Lefkas - racing? Who is racing?

13:30 38:37.27N 20:41.50E Arrive In the well protected harbour of Sivota, Southern Lefkas and drop
anchor in its already well occupied anchorage. We are here to seek the protection of this well protected anchorage as bad weather is forecast to come in with strong southerly winds of circa 30 plus kts.

We find Swiss friend Andre is also sheltering here and invite him over to Bootlegger for aperitifs and dinner which J prepared of large peppers stuffed  with meat and rice; very tasty. We had a good catch up.

Sivota, Southern Lefkas.
