At 9am I went ashore to collect the Albanian port clearance papers from the agent Romina. Sarande, Albania has to be the easiest place in the Mediterranean for entry and exit clearance! Matt and I departed Sarande  at 10:15. Under motor all the way in very light winds on the nose. Arrived at Kastrades and laid the anchor.  I took the dinghy ashore at 13:30 to meet the agent to deal with re-entry into Greece. In contrast to Albania it took the agent about 4.5 hours to complete the Greek re-entry process! That evening Matt and I had a beer at the marina bar before walking into the old town for dinner. Sat near an elderly British couple who said prices had increased significantly this year compared to the previous year in Corfu. I agree!
