Inland Sea

We survived our last night of heavy winds with no problems and I even managed a few hours sleep as the winds died down not long after midnight. We went ashore in the morning to stock up on supplies and to say goodbye to Beccs on Miss Chips. Our plan was to head out to the Inland Sea that afternoon. When [...]

Stowaway!

We stayed in Port Atheni for 3 nights in total, just chilling out and snorkelling when the weather got too hot. But it was time for a change of scene (and we also needed to escape the wasps that were driving us down below at meal times) so we motored the 8 miles to Palairos on the mainland. We anchored [...]

Cats Cradles

Our next stop was Poros 35 miles away on Kephalonia. As we had to motor all the way we were very relieved that Paul had managed to identify the problem with the auto pilot and it behaved well - phew! The first night we anchored just around the point where the water was so clear we could actually see [...]

Muddy Tracks

After 3 nights in Astakos we thought we'd exhausted its possibilities and moved on. Our plan was to head for Messolonghi anchoring for 1 night on the way. We motored (again!) to our planned anchorage but there were lots of fish farms and very little shelter as the land was so flat. There was a lovely [...]

Turtle Spotting

We said goodbye to Arran and his charterers but stayed for another day in Fiskardo. Apart from anything else it's such a faff to do the long line mooring for just one night! We had a very relaxing day and walked around the pretty headland passing the ruins of a Venetian lighthouse and a monastery.

Socotra

08 June 2012
Once the plan was hatched we did some courses and sailed with anyone who would take us but soon realised that we wouldn't get the right experience unless we were making the decisions - and so we bought our first boat. We bought Socotra, not the island in the Indian Ocean but a Moody 28, in Chichester spring 2009 and spent an 'exciting' summer sailing her home to Portishead. We learnt alot!! 18 months later we were ready for the next stage.............................
