Lynn Rival was hauled out at Partheni boatyard on Leros on Friday 13th October. We spent a few days working on the engine and doing end of season chores before travelling back to England. The weather was getting more stormy by the day and just before we left the island experienced unusually heavy rain and flooding.

We plan to be back on Leros in April for the usual start of season work before setting off for more exploring of the Dodecanese and then the southern coast of Turkey. In the autumn we are planning to head south, through the Suez Canal and down the Red Sea, so we'll also have lots of organising to do over the summer.
