Beautiful Islands

We loved Corfu Town with its Venetian forts and architecture. It's lovely to wander the narrow streets and shops, lots are full of tourist rubbish but also lots of interesting ones, and of course, lots of bars and restaurants. To get into town we had to walk through the fort which is home to the music [...]

A Swell Passage

After our road trip from hell, we spent a leisurely day onboard resting and getting the boat ready to move at 7.00 am the next morning for a long 63 NM run south to Sarande. We couldn't head directly to Greece without checking out in Vlore or Sarande first. Of course we did not consider just going and [...]

A Capital Day Out and the Nightmare from Berati

The following day we left the others behind and went on an overnight trip to Tirana, Albania's capital city. The journey was a bit challenging after the integrated and efficient public transport systems of Spain and Italy, but it worked well. There's no bus station in Vlore and we could find no timetables [...]

Our first stop was a small bay about 20 nautical miles away, Porto Palermo. This was a beautiful spot dominated by one of Ali Pasha's castles on a spit [...]

Grand Tour

It was raining on the Wednesday, so we decided to put off hiring a car until the next day which turned out to be just as well, as Miss Chips who we last saw in Lefkas a week or two back had decided to follow us to Albania and arrived that afternoon. So we now had a party of six for our planned grand [...]

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.............................
