Not much to say in Bozburan
Tuesday 7th October 2014
Very quiet couple of weeks pottering around the Datca penisular,
only excitement was when a mad Russian crashed
into us in Datca harbour whilst we were astern with our anchor down. Doubtless
he’ll say it was all our fault. Not much damage on either side but our insurers
say Pupa Yachting are a legend in our time
We did get caught in the gulf of Gokova with 30kn westerly winds but we found an excellent spot to lie low in a ‘marinette’ owned by a family who had completed a circumnavigation and are providing shelter , and a brilliant restaurant, to others. They also have loads of oppies for children in the summer. It was so sheltered that K was querying the weather forecast until our neighbour ventured out of the bay and returned an hour later, saying his crew would have to get a taxi to Bodrum for the airport. We managed a couple of good sails as the wind turned N . I was not very happy when hauling up the anchor in Datca to find a huge charter catamaran cutting across our bow. The skipper was on the wheel the far side of the boat and couldn’t see us and the crew were Russian yobs in skimpy speedos. At least our bow roller did more damage to his GRP than he did to us. We are anchoring for a few days before heading back to Marmaris. Lovely and peaceful and we haven’t had to take a dreaded line ashore!
