Position 39:08.667N 23:51.919E
The plan was to leave Skyros early as Skiathos was about 60nm. The early bit worked ok and we left at 0600 but first the sun setting over the ferry.
Now some early morning shots
This one shows the gap between islands that we came through to go north. A final one
As you can see there was no wind so we motored past an island Nisos Skantzoura
And then two islands
Well they are rocks really. Finally Alonissos ……so what happened to Skiathos? Some 20 odd years ago Phil spent some time on a boat out here with a girlfriend. He wanted to visit the bay where they anchored so we did……
…stopping there for a couple of hours for a swim and a nostalgic dip for Phil.
This was all too much so we then motored the 2 miles to Patriti harbour.
A quick tour found something for Colin….
…and another for Dave’s collection
The town is reasonably busy and comparatively large. There are two settlements within a mile or so which we sailed past.
The posher end of town
The high street
Altogether a great place for visitors. Tomorrow we may go to Skiathos if we don’t get distracted again by Phil’s nostalgic reminiscences.
