Depart Preveza for Lefkada. Up early, Jude went shopping, I completed some final tasks relating to autopilot repairs, then sorted out my transit log.

Motor sail in 15knt winds, once we cleared the Preveza channel markers. Arrived in time for the 3pm bridge opening at Lefkas, only to be advised that there was no 3pm opening, so we laid anchor nearby, then motored through a 4pm. No berths available at Lefkas marina, so we continued south, clearing the channel markers then laying anchor at Lymi point. We took the dinghy ashore and walked to the local supermarket to pick up water, returned to a popular taverna on the shore for dinner, back to Westralia around 10:30pm. On the way to shore in the dinghy, we were hailed by a couple on a motor yacht who wanted a lift ashore. All a bit weird, their dinghy was elsewhere, they apparently had accommodation onshore. As soon as we arrived at the small jetty at the taverna they shot through. Jude is reading some clandestine activity into that one!
