This is the beach where we saw the shepherd filling water containers for a huge herd of goats which were being rounded up by his dog. There is something so very soothing about the tinkling of bells. Goat herds on the islands are very large due to the lack of festivals this year and last year.
We have been sailing together for 15 years and have owned Stiletto for 13 of them. We have exhausted the Solent and the South Coast and all the other usual passages: West Country, France, Channel Islands etc. that are available from our home port of Gosport. [...]We are now embarking on our "Slow Boat to the Med" big adventure, having sailed out of Gosport in April 2017, with our final destination being the island of Ikaria, in the Eastern Aegean - where Andreas has his family roots. This will become the base for our adventures in Greek waters in the coming years. With hundreds of stunning island locations to cruise we could be away a while!
