September Sailing South- 48

September Sailing South- 48

We have had another fabulous 2 weeks.  We were actually sailing in the right direction with the wind behind us, not too many waves and generally great conditions for gentle sailing.  Fair Winds and following seas on the nail.   We juggled sailing with work days, we...
Family Treat … 47

Family Treat … 47

We have had such a great week with the family.  Dominic and Robyn and their two children Florence and Freddie had hired a beautiful villa in Alonissos and managed to persuade their good friends Sarah and George to come along too.  This was quite a good shout I...

Christmas Comes Early 46

We were very excited to see our family coming to stay and for an extra bonus we had arranged a parcel to arrive at the same time.   So I thought I would run through the traumas of shopping whilst living on a boat. Because we don’t have an address a lot of the time, as...

The Evia Channel 40

The Evia Channel 40

We timed the crossing of the Dora Strait well and we got across without any dramas.  The wind and waves were actually higher coming up the first part of the Evia channel so we decided to take a break and have breakfast in the lea of the first island.  We then set off...
Weeks of Wind 39

Weeks of Wind 39

We thought it would be a great opportunity to go to a homeopathic course by George Vithoulkas on the island of Alonnisis.  He is a very famous homeopath and so this was an opportunity not to be missed.  The problem was with weddings and visitors we were...
