Very pleasant place to be on hook in +16m depths. We enjoyed a very good 27NM sail between Porto Kheli and here. The donk being used only when pulling our hook out Ermioni's seabed at the start, then when commencing final approach and narrow channel between Nisos Poros and mainland. We set up with 2 reefs in mainsl and a good reef in gibsl expecting nasty gusts as the N'ly winds found path of least resistance towards us as we headed due E. Once we cleared the headland and became exposed to the choppy open seas we were able to show all our gibsl for first time and close-haul better. When we tacked (just the once) we were able to set good course towards Poros channel. An enjoyably good sail worthy of giving autopilota break from time to time. So enjoyable we delayed eating until after putting hook in late afternoon.
We made point of visiting local taverna yesterday for lunch. White Cat taverna gets a thumbs-up for Saronic beer, octypus and shrimp saganaki.
This morning we couldn't help spot a similar-looking yacht, on hook 100m or so off our bow. S/Y Knotty Girl, owned by Tanya and Roberto, Discovery 55 built just over a year ago. Always good to meet another look-a-like. Even tok some pics.
Today planning to find out which local taverna/bar has football on TV so RIB goes back in water to get us there and back.
