The rest of the short passage was uneventful. I will say though that sailing without the view of land or boats or any kind of creature is perhaps the most peaceful and pleasant experience of all of sailing. Making the passage, no matter how short, is the greatest joy of sailing for me. Approaching land at night without the moon to act as a streetlight was challenging to the eyes-thank goodness for charts to remind us that the land was still three miles to port-even if it looked like it was about to reach out and touch us.
We arrived in Gouvia marina at 12:30 pm on Tuesday. We found the harbor police in the marina-but that will have to be a story Mike tells you over a beer or two. We took a taxi who knew the drill for boats entering the country and he drove us to each area, didn’t charge for wait time. The distances between customs, passport control, and the port authority were too far in 90 degree and 95% humidity to even consider walking. There is more to tell regarding transit logs, fees, an EU boat and a foreign boat (of which we fit into neither category and confuse these dear folks)-but again that’s for a tavern tale.
