19/06/22 Tomb Bay to Gocek anchorage
Weather: Hot, sunny day temp 33’c in the saloon, 31’c in the cabin at night. Sea temp 31.9’c. Light southerly breeze.
We left the anchorage at 1120. Light southerly breeze so able to sail most of the way with full main and two reefs in the Genoa for comfort. It took us a couple of hours of gentle sailing to get into Gocek bay and onto the pump out pontoon to pump out our black water. We decided at this point to get more fuel while we were there. Nearly £190 later, we had topped up with fuel. We left the fuel berth and made our way to the anchorage. It didn’t appear busy on our arrival, but it is strangely difficult to get a comfortable anchorage amongst other yachts in the same vicinity. As the afternoon progressed it did start to get very busy.
We went ashore to get some provisions and to see if North Sails were open to try to get a quote for new rigging and canvas work but they were closed.
20/06/22 Gocek anchorage 36’45”.278N 28’56”.138E
Weather: Hot, Sunny, saloon temp 34’c, sea temp 31.9’c, light NW breeze.
We got the washing into the launderette early then went off the South West Sails to see if they would give us quote for new rigging. They were extremely charming and had good vibes about them. They cancelled a job in Marmaris to visit Muskrat tomorrow at 0900 to measure up and give us a quote. We also decided to quote for a new Bimini and spray hood while they were about it. We did explain that we would not want the work done until probably next year, but this did not appear to worry them but they couldn’t guarantee the price of the materials would hold that long.
At 1745 we went back to the laundry to get the washing that was ready in the bag all nicely folded and bagged up. Unfortunately when we got back to Muskrat and opened the bag I realised the bedding was missing, the laundry was now closed. We will have to go back first thing to see if they can find our bedding.
