Sep 7, 2017 - At anchor Sivota, Lefkas, Greece (2nd time here this trip)

Good morning from the sleepy little village of Vathy. How peaceful and calm our night was. The wind threats has subsided, so it is time for us to depart. Depending on the wind, will depend just where we spend the night. The winds are still from the NW.... so we would need a protected harbor from those winds. With just a little stern truster assistance from the port, and we were on our way.. The first place Jacques picked for our lunch, was not too welcome by the two boats that were already anchored and happy. In fact, when one of the boats...

Aug 13, 2017 - At anchor in front of Sivota, Lefkas

Today is going to be the longest travel day of this trip. We have to go 43 miles, from Anti-Paxos to Sivota, Lefkas. Milena travels around 6 - 8 miles pere hour -- so 7 hours, roughly. .

I am so proud of them -- and...

May 14, 2015 - Ftelias - on the Greek / Albanian Border

Had a very leisurely sail (yes-a sail!) across to Ftelias. It was a 10 mile stretch and we had about 8-15 knots of wind. The bay is on the Albanian border and the actual border splits the bay in two so we had to swim on the Albanian side and on the Greek side. No one asked for passports though! Along the coast here there was a lot of fish farming happening. After our swim and lunch on board, we headed back to Gouvia to return The Coral Sea.

Nov 21, 2010 - Between Igoumenitsa & Venice (Venetie)

Lieve allemaal, We zijn nu echt onderweg naar huis en zitten op de boot naar Venetie. Morgenochtend begint de rit terug. In Kalembaka hebben we ons einddiner gehad, met het uitreiken van de prijzen voor de foto wedstrijd en die heb ik, Dini gewonnen ! Ik ben apetrots ;-) Ook overhandigden we ons kado voor de leiding aan Joke & John, een emotioneel en humorvol gebeuren. Wij kregen van hen de groepsfoto, een heerlijke zakje met diverse Dode Zee producten en een icoontje (geschonken door de campingeigenaar) en wij kochten van hem een icoon van...
