Last day in Greece
Thank you Greece and all nice, friendly and helpful greek people. Lots of new sailing friends. It has been a fantastic year.
Wake upp call at 6:45, prepare for takeoff. Anchor light off, navigation light on! The sky is very red, what does that mean for us?
"Red sky in the night is a sailors delight
Red sky in the morning is a sailors warning "
49 NM to cross over to Italy no wind but strong swells from the north. Three hours with rock and roll. Then the wind came YES, between 18 and 25 kno
ts just perfect for Sans Peur. All sails out, this will speed up the old lady. So wonderful with balance and we are making good speed between 6-7,5 knots.
Now we crossed the border! Fred change the courtesy flag.
