In the morning at Meganisi things were very nice. Then
at midday the flotilla arrived. One by one they started to drop anchor
around us. No longer the quiet place to be and they all did not tie off
to shore so when the winds change in the evening they will hit each
other. Further they were dropping their anchor rodes over each other.
We pulled anchor and went back to Lefkas. Not that it
is a favorite place but it is an easy distance away and has wonderful
protection from the winds. The bay is so large and even bottom that well
over one hundred boats can easily fit. The downside is the water is green
from the landlocked nature and there always seems to be a water skier present
going around the place. Very few rules in Greece on boat speeds in anchorages.
Near the anchorage is the town of Nidri. It is a
tourist place catering to the British. But the food is good and there are
grocery stores, a small chandler and banks.
Anchorage as we leave.
Town of Nidri from the water. It is possible to
stern-to at the town quay but the wakes from all the passing boats can be
