Hot Springs

03 June 2012 | Kammeni - Off Santorini
Barrie - Calm Moonlit Night 26C
We had a wonderful late afternoon sail from Ios to Santorini, with calm seas and a gentle 10 knots of wind on the beam. Santorini doesn't have many places to moor a yacht as the pumice cliffs are sheer. Bill had told us about one of his favourite spots- a sheltered cove off a small island in the middle of the volcanic crater. The barren island is the cinder plug left by an ancient eruption, and by day the cove is a star attraction with a steady stream of tripper boats bringing people for a quick dip in the hot spring water. Even though we arrived at 18:45 we had to circle round for thirty minutes for the last of the boats to disappear, and then a fisherman indicated we should tie up to the buoy he was about to leave to set his nets. Now we have the place to ourselves and a few goats, and are looking forward to an early morning swim.
The photograph shows one of the many Hora built around the rim of the crater.
Vessel Name: Yarona
Vessel Make/Model: Hallberg Rassy, HR43
Hailing Port: Lancaster, UK
Crew: Barrie and Kath Stott
We learnt to sail in 2001, first on flotilla holidays then on various courses and "mile builders". In 2008 we blew caution to the wind, downsized our home and sold our business, bought Yarona, and sailed for six months each year. [...]
Extra: Yarona was launched in 2003. She had already done a circumnavigation when we bought her. We believe her to be the perfect yacht for a live-aboard couple. She is our first boat, and probably our last!
