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
s 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.
