Monday 01 September. 

After a two week delay in our return to Greece, we finally get away, paying a brief but pleasant visit to see Karl and Ellie in Buckinghamshire on the way. We flew out to Athens from Terminal 5 Heathrow on this morning's 06:45 BA flight.  From Athens City we take 13:45 bus to Preveza where we have left Bootlegger, a journey of some 500 Km. 
We arrive in Preveza six hours later - after one short pee break at the Corinth Canal, arriving in Preveza at 20:00 hrs. A long day. We find Bootlegger looking well and surprisingly clean after our six week absence. We sleep well.

the largest of its kind, that spans the Gulf of Patras

return to Preveza. There is a curl at the top of the leech
that cannot be removed with the leech line tensioner
which is now to be addressed by suppliers Waypoint Sails
