There being only 20 nmiles or so from Aigina to Piraeus, we did not hurry to leave the anchorage, and spent the morning swimming and chilling out.  Steve and James took the rib ashore to get fresh bread for lunch, and we set off soon after.
We soon realised that perhaps this had not been the best plan.  We had 5 knots of wind on the nose and seas we would have associated with a lot more wind, and progress beating into it was very slow.  After a while we decided that we were not making enough headway under sail, and so we motor-sailed the rest of the way. 
We arrived at Zea Marina late afternoon and were shown into a berth and our lines taken.  It made a nice change to have a lazy line and help with mooring.  This will be our base for the next couple of days.
