29-10-2013 ASTYPALEIA - IOS

Tue. 29 oct.2013


Log : 60,4 NM
Wind : N 1 - 2 Bf
Weather : sun and clouds 21 ºC

We left Astypaleia early in the morning, because today it's a long trip.
There isn't much wind so our engine had to help us out.

We didn't reach the harbour before darkness, so we experienced a beautifull sunset at sea.

At 1900h local time we moored in the harbour of Ios.
There are 3 sailingyachts on the quay today.

Afterwards we again had a nice diner, at the Niotissa Meze-Meze taverna (right behind the yachtquay).

Today we stayed in Astypaleia.
We walked to the old castle, the views from up there are spectacular.
The rest of the day we relaxed ... some of us had a swim.

At night we had a dillicious spagetti with lobster at the Maistrali-taverna.

Sun. 27 oct.2013  


Log : 42,3 NM
Wind : NNW 5 Bf
Weather : sunny 22 ºC  

After breakfast, we left Pali at 1030h.  

The sea was pretty rough and we had a sharp reach towards Astypaleia.
It wasn't ideal that the waves were kicking in on the side of our ship, it wasn't comfortable at all.
So we had a few seasick people on board.

After a fast sail we arrived in Skala on Astypaleia at 1700h.
We moored in the new yachtharbour.  

At night we had a nice dinner at the Maistrali-taverna,
eating out in Greece is still cheap, we payed ca. 17 Euro pro person (incl. starters, main course, small dessert, beers, wine, etc.).

Sat. 26 oct.2013  


Log : 11,3 NM
Wind : NNW 4 Bf
Weather : sunny 23 ºC  

After an early flight we arrived at 1100h in Kardamena on Kos.

Our boat wasn't ready yet, they were still cleaning it.   So we went for a drink...  

At 1500h we checked-in our yacht, a Bavaria 50 'Aiolos'.  

We left Kardamena at 15.30h.

There was a nice wind blowing, so we had a fast broad reach towards Nisyros.  
At 17.15h we dropped anchor in the small harbour of Pali.
There are 4 yachts moored in the harbour.

In the evening we had a tasty Greek-dinner at the Aphrodite-taverna.
