On Our Own Again

30 August 2016
Angie Hot and sunny 31°
6th -10th August
We spent 4days on the floating pontoon until the weather cleared so just relaxed and swam, then sailed across to Skiathos and anchored in the bay around the corner from the town pier, Ormos Siferi. Went ashore and wondered around the town, did some provision shopping and had Dinner.

11th August
Sailed and motor sailed 35nm to Ormos Vathoudhi (Volos Gulf) stopping for lunch and a swim at Platania we ended up on Achor for 2 night sitting out a storm, 40 knots Plus on anchor. We watched in disbelief as a fisherman wove his way between anchor boats dropping his net. He dropped right over a neighboring German boats anchor. The next morning when he came back he started picking up his nets and when he got to the German boat and shor enough his net was tangled around the chain and anchor. He just shrugged his shoulders and cut the net and drove off. As we were leaving we circled back and warned them about the fishing net on their anchor.

13th August motored 18nm to Velos staying 2 nights on the Town Pier. we were helped to moor by a rather enibriated Irishmen who informed us that he was the unofficial Harbour Master. He was very good in the end he had our gas bottle replaced and connected us to electricity their is no charge by the port authority for the mooring and he had put €5 on the power meter he survives on tips so we tipped him €20. We had fun exploring on our bikes.

15th August
Traveled 38nm to Ormos Vathikelon where we stern tied. Only managed to get in 5nm of sailing. It was a lovely spot and we had a quiet evening.

16th August
Traveled a distance of 33nm not a lot of sailing again. Stopped for lunch at Nisos Likhades at the northern end of Evia, and spent the night on Anchor at Kolpos Atalantis. It was a beautiful little bay with a couple of Tavernas and holiday homes. Would ha liked to stay longer but we needed to move as there was some big winds on the way.
More to come
