Leave Agni around noon heading for Othonoi. Expect to motor but breeze fills in as we get to the north east corner of Corfu.  Have a lovely beat up the North Coast. Decide to shorten course to Erikousa. Anchor around 17:00 in the lee of the island off the beach. Good holding. A bit of a swell at 90 degrees to the wind that leads to some yawing. Not bad enough to set a kedge.

 

Ashore for dinner. There was only one restaurant open,  Erikousa Hotel. George the owner was born in the Bronx and emigrated with his family back to Greece as a young child. Very pleasant fellow. He says in the summer the island is packed with Italians. Food was good. Wine excellent.
