Sorry for the delay in Zoot Allures’ progress but it just has been next to impossible to post any thing due to the lack in Internet coverage. I could barely get my wind forecasts. But all is well and we are safely tucked away in the bay of Drepanon, a skip and hop from Nafplio (which would be the worst place to be at this time of the year)
10 days ago I sailed west from Rhenea to Finika in Siros to pick up my sis and her “dumb” (deaf) dog Panos. Since then we’ve been cruising our way here arriving last Friday. I’ve been pretty busy since this has been my first charter, per se. So when I say stay tuned at the end of each post, I mean it. The next series of posts will be about….
The sloppy sail to Kythnos and the beautiful bay of Agios Ioannis
The harrowing 60 mile passage to Ydra
The sail to and storms in Porto Heli
The quaint bay of Korakonisia
And the sail down here. Good thing sis took a bunch of pictures, cause I didn’t shoot squat!
So here I am. I was anchored out for 3 days and today managed to borrow a mooring ball for a week and tonight will sleep on land at our farm (Mom and sis went to Athens for the weekend).
The winds hardly gust over 10knots, the water is a bit merky with low visibility, ew, and it’s pretty damn hot. But in the evenings I row to the small port, beach the dingy a meter from my table and gaze out to Zoot Allures and the full moon (naturally having a beer and a light dinner)
I’ve been known for repeating myself so…
Ps…. Zoots got no beer! Plus very low on diesel, water, provisions. But hey, there’s plenty of dog hair!
Pss… plus I still havent written about the water in my tranny and the multiple oil changes. But thats a story I’ll write about when I’m back home safe and sound, methinketh.
