Apps for sailing in Greece & the Med


Because on our last sailingtrips every taverna offered free WI-FI for their customers,
it's easy to check the latest weatherreports etc.

I used the following apps on my Android-phone :

Apps for weather (free):
- Poseidon
- Meteo Sail Greece
- Windfinder

App for navigation (price ca. 20 Euro) :
- Navionics Marine Europe

Hope it's helpful,

Fri. 1 nov. 2013  

Log : 37,1 NM
Wind : N 5-6 Bf
Weather : sunny 22 ºC  

We hauled anchor and left Poros at 1000h.

The first part of the trip we motored North along Aegina's westside.

Afterwards we had fast sharp sail towards Athens.

At 1700h we moored in the big Alimos Marina.
The people of Kerkeris-yachts did a swift checkout, our yacht was ok.  

This was a week with supersailing and we were lucky with the sunny weather.
The only disadvantage this season is that it gets dark early in the evening.  

We logged a total of 257,6 NM this week.

31-10-2013 SIFNOS - POROS

Thur. 31 oct. 2013  


Log : 67,9 NM
Wind : N 5 - 6 Bf
Weather : sunny 23ºC  

This morning we left at 0430h, because it's a long way to Poros.  

It was our best sailingday of the year,
we started with easysailing in the dark under a sky filled with stars,
afterwards it was more heavy sailing with a sharp reach and a bumpy sea.

We sailed for ca. 11 hours with an everage speed of nearly 7 knots.  

At 1600h we anchored on the south-quay in Poros.  

Poros is more busy than the other islands this week ... there are a lot of yachts anchored here.  

Now we're having a very nice diner at the Apagio-taverna.
