I took the big dinghy this morning and went to the village half a mile away for some fresh bread. After breakfast we got Laroobaa ready to sail to another anchorage. When we left the wind picked up and we decided to sail, but after all sails have been hoisted it turned south and eventually died.
We dropped sailsand motored across Narliköy Channel to the big bay of Ocaklar.
After we dropped the anchor in 15 m depth to have some distance to the crowded beach, the wind picked up again.
We went for a swim and the wind got stronger and stronger, up to 25 knots.
This local wind is called Poyraz and blowing from the Northeast.
Our anchorage in the bay of Ocaklar is protected by mountains in the North and the East. Even with the wind blowing like this the anchorage is comfortable, as no waves can built up, when it is blowing from the land.
