Dropped hook Ormos Fikiadha couple days ago. It's a beautiful setting, having a sand isthmus separating two bays. We chose the east bay to avoid wash from passing ships. Our first night was Tuesday. Very quiet. No charter boats. From then on the bay has been visited by a selection of brainless charter missile skippers who seem to have little idea abour anchoring safely. Yesterday we waited until just before dark before relocating Ticketeeboo well away from these idiots, putting us nice and safe for us to sleep settled.
Today the bay almost cleared, save for couple other owner-yachts and ourselves. By late afternoon the bay filled again. Same routine except this time most of the troublesome charterers have 'plonked' their hooks well away. There's certainly an increasing number of ugly charter-catamarans in these waters. We hope they become scarcer as we put more NM between ourselves and Lavrion/Athens.
We've been catching-up on some jobs. Each of the last 3 days, a little bit gelcoat polishing! Ticketeeboo begining to look the part with sparkling white cockpit and aft deck gelcoat. Might continue with cabtop and for'd deck tomorrow if it takes our fancy?
Good swim this morning to check location of our anchor and chain. Neighbouring s/y Puppy thought we might be over their chain. We ain't and we're well away so we are all happy. Sue did a wash and it's clean bedding tonight (again).
