    Back to the Home Port of Lefkada

    October 6, 2018 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Rincewind was home.

    The journey from the bay was straightforward enough and for a while the wind increased and Penny & Tom raised the sails. The wind wasn't all that strong but there was just enough to help the yacht on its way. Rob took Rincewind down the channel which leads to the large marina in Lefkada then Penny took over when it was time to refuel.

    Once Rincewind was in her birth there was a short debrief to hand-back the yacht then that was it. But what's that in the harbour, if not a pirate boat blazenly flying its Skull & Crossbones? We have seen pirates!

    The final group event was at the nearby hotel bar and on the way to the gathering, Greece finally produced a sunset even though the only camera Rob had was his phone ... but at least there was finally a sunset which meant the title of this trip hasn't needed to be changed.

    At the 'goodbye meeting' various awards were given, with certificates too, and for the crew of Rincewind it was for best at parking of a yacht and for having the oldest crew member for at least this season, and probably much longer to be honest. Alan had been a bit of a celebrity all week it has to be said.

    The final meal was in town at the Nautilus restaurant which was recommended by friends of Penny & Tom. Good choice too as it was a lovely meal for the last night.
