On Monday we left after breakfast
with two reefs in the main and half the genny rolled out. There was a
Force 4-5 blowing from the west and we had a bumpy reach down to the
southern headland where we turned left and headed into the Aegean
proper. The closer we got to Kea the more the wind died and we
eventually ended up motoring the final 10 miles or so. I decided that we
should go to a bay on the north coast called Ormos Orgias, normally you
can't go in here in a yacht as the Meltimi wind blows straight in
there, sometimes up to 40 knots. But the Meltimi has not started blowing
yet, and there was no wind forecast so we were safe to spend the night
It was really beautiful, with a long sandy beach and hardly anyone
around. There was one other yacht who looked a bit disappointed when we
We had dinner in the only Taverna and the girls had fun playing on the beach and in the playground.
A nice introduction to the Cyclades.
