Eastern Med Blog 4, The Ionian South of Lefkas canal (June/July 2018)

Since the last blog, we went from Áy Eufimia where we sat out some stormy weather and serious rain for two days and managed to visit the cave lake, Melissani during a break in the weather. From there, we had a short hop to Poros, a small town but a major ferry port for Cephalonia and onward to Zákinthos [...]

Martyn/ weather fine after a big blow yesterday. Snow still on the High Sierras
Well a hectic few days of travelling and servicing props, replacing anodes and getting ready for the boat lift but glad to say the boat is back in the water and floating. Engine started 1st time after 7 months on the hard and so far everything else seems to be working fine. We were warned about the fine dust from the Sahara and arid Southern Spain, much hosing down has solved that. Most of the canvas, Bimini, Dodger, etc back on the boat. Got the Solent and the Staysail up this morning. Mainsail can wait for the next windless morning. Lekker to be sitting here without a shirt on although amazing to note, as I looked out the hatch at coffee parade this morning, that there is still snow on the high peaks of the Sierra Nevada ( see pic). We are 37deg 40' North, that is only ay tad further north than Cape Town is south The boat next to us is from Durban, no sign of the occupants though. It is named Ezulwini, which I think means, "In Heaven".

Having some dual primary fuel filters fitted, engine service and sorting out an earth leak Monday and Tuesday, so I cannot see us leaving here to head north before next Thursday. Until the next blog..adios amigos.

This is an arm waving plan of what we might achieve in 2017. We plan however to be less schedule driven this year, so let's see what happens.
