    First Day Sailing

    October 1, 2018 in Greece ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Today the weather was bright and sunny and after a morning briefing and a visit to the supermarket for supplies, the boat was prepared and Penny took the helm. Her trusty crew manned the ropes and Rincewind, the name of the yacht, glided from its mooring and headed for the open seas.

    Sounds impressive doesn't it ... and it was to be honest. The water was calm and a lovely deep blue and the temperature pleasant. Once out of the shelter of the port there was a favourable wind and soon the main sail was suitably hoisted.

    The sails were used all day with the wind gusting to around 20 knots at times and it really was fun even though there was plenty to do at times. It seemed like no time at all when the destination port was sighted then Penny was skilfully manoeuvring Rincewind into her birth for the night.

    The day ended with a G&T all-round then a lovely meal out in a nearby restaurant. No sign of a sunset though, so maybe tomorrow.

    No pirates either.

    Preveza - Ormos Syvota ( Levkada )

    July 29, 2007 in Greece ⋅ 25 °C

    Da die Brücke immer noch closed ist müssen wir um die ganze Insel Levkada umrunden um nach Levkas Stadt zu gelangen. Wir müssen hier einige Dinge besorgen. Wir haben von Zoe gute Adressen erhalten.
    Um 07.15 starten wir. Heute ist wieder zu wenig Wind um zu segeln. Die ersten 25 sm legen wir unter Motor zurück. Die Westseite der Insel ist eindrücklich, die hohen Berge fallen zum Teil fast senkrecht in das himmelblaue Meer. Als wir die Südspitze von Levkada passiert haben kommt doch noch leicht Wind auf. Dem Tank zuliebe ( und dem Budget ) segeln wir die restlichen 7 sm noch.
    Wir steuern die Bucht Syvota an und setzen die MAXI gleich vor eine Bar. Diese schöne Bucht ist vor allen Winden gut geschützt und sie füllt sich auch nadisna.
