Brexit

From Preveza we had a long and rolly motor through the swell to the island of Paxos where we anchored in Mongonisi bay for the night. The bay was deserted with no other boats and the one beach side taverna still closed for the winter. We loved it after the hustle and bustle of the last few weeks. Our [...]

Heading North

As you can see from the title we have managed to escape from Velco bay, sorry I mean Nydri. But like the rest of our time there our last couple of days were lovely.

Velcro Bay

Despite intending to stay in Nydri for only a few days, eight days after arriving we are still here. A mile further south from Nydri is Vliho Bay, otherwise known as Velcro Bay. Firstly because the bottom is soft sticky mud which makes for secure anchoring - boats stay put - and secondly because it is [...]

Alone at Sea

Back Home at Short Notice

We had a really exhilarating sail to Santa Maria di Leuca,. For the first hour or two there was no wind, but as per forecast it picked up and for nine hours we were sailing at around 6.5 kts with the wind on the beam. Two great sails in a row and we thought we were on a roll.

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