It's good to be sailing again after a year of easy living in Ayria Napa Marina.
We finally weighed anchor from a rather exposed spot off Risso beach Paphos at 17.15 yesterday. 
I collected the reconditioned fuel injector pump from Fiona in Larnaca on Wednesday taking the bus from Paphos. The full story of fuel leaks will have to be logged before I forget the details, but the short version is that it has taken 3 weeks of struggling with inaccessible nuts to get here. I am not completely convinced that we are leak free but the engine ran for a couple of hours yesterday without complaint.
Now we are sailing towards Turkey at 290 degrees in 17 knots of apparent wind making 5.5 knots a little north of where we want to head.
Next stop should be Kastellorizo sometime tomorrow if  Neptune allows.
