We sail most of the ten miles or so to Skiathos. One of Vangelis’ mates has organised a berth for us. We take
on 1467 litres of diesel. Who said sailing was free? I didn’t buy any in Turkey
as it was even more expensive.
Skiathos is the huge tourist trap. Planes and boats arrive continuously. It
doesn’t inspire any picture taking.
I do find an excellent fan for the chart
table which I’ve been wanting for years.
We leave at 7:30 on the 30th planning to go the inside route
around Evvia, however we’re just discovered that the bridge we have to bass
under only opens between 1AM and
4AM and not at all on weekends so we’re making a run on the outside. This takes
us through a particularly nasty piece of water and the Meltemi is abut to start
in earnest, but hopefully we’ll turn the corner tonight before it really starts
