A fabulous sail from
Porto Heli to Poros covering 30.06 nautical miles and our top speed was
8.17. We had thought it was going to be
a motor all the way but no the wind blew from the south and we only had to
motor approximately 4 miles. It took us
6 hours exactly and the wind was steady until we turned the corner to head into
the Poros channel when the wind came over the mountain and blew down and
suddenly we had 18 to 23 knots with the main up roaring along. Luckily as soon as we got closer to the
island we had some shelter and were able to get the main down and motor along
the quay into Navy Bay. The quay was
full of charter boats so we anchored off the college and had a super quiet
night and for once not even a dog barking during the night
On the way we were passed by over 20 big motor
cruisers mostly flying Maltese flags whom we believe had been exhibiting at
Nafplio boat show. A lot of money went past us!!!!!
