    Giali

    September 21 in Greece

    We enjoyed our time in Leros but more high winds were forecast so after taking receipt of our repaired foresail and getting winched up the mast to release the leech line. (The rope that gets attached to the top of the foresail that because it’s a furling foresail stays at the top usually but comes down when you pull the sail down to store it). We reattached the foresail and headed off, on the recommendation of Sarah and Dennis and because of the wind direction, we headed south travelling down the east coast of Kalymnos and went to the island of Pserimos and the harbour where we lunched. We had hoped to anchor here but way too much swell and we couldn’t moor Med style until later when all the trip boats had left the island so instead we anchored off the south coast with a line ashore just us and the local goats, lovely. In the harbour yachts had anchored in the space indicated in the local pilot book only to be almost run over when the large black and yellow trip boats went stern too on the East mole. Next day we skirted the east and south east coast Kos and anchored on the south coast of Giali where they mine the local sand from the cliffs, not exactly picturesque but an interesting and sheltered anchorage only 3miles North of our destination.Read more

    Nisiros by quad

    September 22 in Greece

    We arrived nice and early in Nisiros and as we had enjoyed the quad biking in Leros and because buses only ran between three points on the island we hired another quad bike. This meant we could go to Mandraki harbour where the main town was and trip boats from Kos docked as well as Eborios a small village on the north side of the caldera where there was the tiniest sauna ever and incredible views North of Giali and Kos. We then travelled towards the centre but visited Nikia another village on the south east edge of the caldera before we headed down into the Caldera itself and the two smaller but still steaming craters. We took the unsaved road south from the crater and westwards around the island to the PaleoCastro old castle for the sunset 🌅 before returning to the boat in Palon.Read more

    Mandraki und Vulkan Nisyros

    July 20, 2013 in Greece

    Der Tagesausflug in die südliche Ägais auf die Insel Nisyros hat sich gelohnt. Die Überfahrt dauerte ca. 90min von Kos. In Kos angekommen hieß es erst einmal sich durch die Menschenmassen durchkämpfen bis zum Erreichen des Buses, so ging es mittels Bus in die Caldera des Vulkans die vor ca. 150000 Jahren entstand, die letzte kleine Erroption fand in den Jahren 1881 bis 1887 statt und nun stehen wir genau hier drin. Kleine Fumarole wohin man blickt, wärme, feuchte und natürlich Schwefelgeruch lag in der Luft. Leider war der Bus-Trip recht kurz, nur 30min hatten wir hier unten! Schade, eine Eigenanreise hätte mehr gebracht, ABER nach uns kam die Sinnflut an Touristen.Read more

    Mandraki

    July 20, 2013 in Greece

    Die kleine Hafenstadt Mandraki auf der Insel Nisyros ist auf jedenfall ein Ausflug wert, kleine, schmale Gassen, kleine Balkons und eine typische griechische Insel. Nah der Promenade sind viele Einkehrmöglichkeiten vorhanden mit einem schönen Blick auf das Meer, oberhalb der Stadt thront eine alte Johanniterburg.
