The 2010 Sailing Season has begun

11 May 2010 | Preveza
At the end of April despite the ash cloud Iain and I flew with Emirates into Athens. We spent a few days trying to see the sights but summer had not yet started and many sites were closed early that is 14;30. You can see why Greece is in trouble. A bus to Preveza to find Malua in good condition. We set five days to put all the gear onto the boat, paint it with antfouling and polish the top sides. With unexpected efficiency we were put in the water at the appointed time.
We sailed north to anchor in the shadow of the castle of Corfu. Iain spent the day in the retail sector while I provisioned the vessel from the local veg market and supermarkets. From their it was motoring south to Lefkas and to Nadi where Iain left Malua to return to Athens in preparation for his tour of the Greek Islands.
I will sail south to wait for Denny to arrive.

Turkey was a change to the dry barren islands of Greece. It had great trees and wonderful bus walks
