Ormos Linaria - Nisos Skiros 38:50.89N 24:31.93E
When we set-off this morning we donked for first hour and a bit because we had little wind and rolly seas. We don't like flogging our sails when it's like this. Fortunately, after gettin' rid of a little excess and taking a shower it was evident the winds had strengthened just enough to contemplate getting the sails out. So we did and enjoyed some really pleasant sailing, broadreaching most the way here, as far as a shallow gap between Nisos Skiros and Nisos Valaxa, which pilot book describes as "It is scary". In the conditions we enjoyed today it was delightful, just bit shallow to pass through. Crystal clear water above easily observed detailed seabed.
We've decided to go on hook for tonight, harbour half NM away. Intention being to use RIB and visit Linaria town to have ganda and restock on fruit and veg, as well out-else taking our fancy? If we like the harbour and there's space, we might contemplate going into the harbour and tieing to dirt tomorrow. We'll see?
