An early start as the wind had come round in the night and we were edging closer to the shore than was comfortable. We started out by sailing, but the wind decided to die just as we were crossing the Traffic Separation Scheme off the coast of Athens, so the engine went on! Safely across the shipping lanes, we headed across the North coast of the island of Aigina, spotting a submarine on the way. We reached the harbour of Aigina Town late morning, and decided to pass it by and find a beach to anchor off for a swim and lunch. Later we returned to the harbour and found a space on the town quay. We walked around the pleasant town and found a taverna tucked away in a back street where James had his first moussaka of the trip.
