Stayed on Meganissi until Friday morning. On late
Thursday afternoon we tried a bit of diving as I am very rusty, only to
suddenly notice the boat’s longlines were slack and on surfacing found
the wind had got up, the waves were coming and some nice person had pulled up
our anchor. Mad scramble followed to get out of the water before the boat or us
were impaled on the rocks. Then spent next 2 hrs trying to moor on the other
side of the bay.
Left Friday morning heading north as knew strong
winds were coming. Friday afternoon/night was spent in a bay next to Preveza on
Greek mainland. With strong winds, green water and an industrial view we didn’t
leave the boat.
Saturday set sail at 7am and got to Mourtos on the
Greek coast after 7 hrs, to beat the arrival of the winds. Sunday morning was
peaceful until noon when the strong winds arrived which rocked and rolled us
until early hours of the Monday morning. Stayed on board to key eye on the boat
which was just as well as the anchor slipped, but not as badly as the Italian
boat which kept trying to anchor near us but ended up dragging anchor off into
the middle of the large deep bay.
Left Mourtos at 7am this morning to beat any more
winds and got here to the marina on Corfu at
11.30am. Much cooler today which has been very pleasant.
