Sail: Lefkas to Siracusa, Sicily
01 August 2011
Weather was forecast to give us a good run, so we went for it!
Always sad to leave a country you have become fond of. Last minute stock up on Lefkas salami, Greek fresh ground beef and fresh sausage, (they do know how to make sausages here,) & honey, followed by an easy check out. We exited through the bridge at 14:00.
Slow start leaving the Greek waters, but in a few hours we were well on our way.
Had our first real nice 24 hour run of 163 n.m. Moving average of 6.8. Max. speed 10.1! It took us 48:30hrs. of which we sailed 42:15, not bad!
It feels nice to be back in Italy, everything immediately seams just a little more organized.
