An early start from Çanakkale as it was a 50-mile passage.  The first 15 miles to the mouth of the Dardanelles raced past in 2 hours as the current washed us along.  It felt good to be back in the Aegean, and we hoisted the sails and had a cracking close-reached sail in 15-17 knots the whole way.  By 3 o'clock we were anchored in Ormos Plakas, a bay on the North East tip of Limnos for a late lunch.
