Poros

17 August 2012 | Russian Bay, Poros
Dan 34 degrees C, 1012mb, clear skies
We're now anchored at Russian Bay on the western end of Poros and may be hunkered down here for a few days. All of the weather models are forecasting stronger than usual winds of 20-25 knots with gusts in the high twenties beginning later tonight. It usually settles down at night but that's not what is forecast and we'd prefer not to be on anchor watch this evening. We've found good shelter here in Russian Bay, anchored with two lines tied ashore. We have a large 35 meter wooden schooner anchored right next to and effectively dwarfing us. The skipper is an older Greek guy and one woman from California is on board. He also has a couple of deck hands who appear to be Indian helping him. Hmmm... not such a bad idea....

Vanghellis, the proprietor of the local chandlery, is bringing our new Navionics map chip and swim ladder to us sometime tomorrow afternoon. He's been extremely friendly and helpful to us. (Visiting cruisers can contact him at +30 6944986029 or info@vikos-marine.com). So unless something changes, we'll be hanging out here tonight and tomorrow. My big project for the day is to unbolt and move the saloon table 180 degrees so it doesn't require a contortion act to access the bottles of Bombay gin and Malibu rum that are stored in the base compartment. It's critical on any boat to that the essential supplies are easily within reach at all times :)
