There was what must be several ‘pods’ heading towards the fish farm at Preveza in the inland sea (see map on earlier post).  Our friends Matt & Alex(f) on Ragio had radioed, and we sailed in parallel with the dolphins around and between both boats for over 20 minutes.

about 20 around the boat’s bow – surfing off our pressure wave

Bear Grylls Camping – also wish you were here

Last weekend, camping in Devon

Had to carry everything in and out, down a cliff in torrential rain.

The sun came out, and the solitude and privacy and views were EPIC.

Michael, living locally, went home each evening, but came over each day.

 Karen & Stephen visited, but unfortunately a combination of deck shoes & fear of heights meant Steve could/would not attempt the cliff so we had to hoist a cuppa to him back up the cliff face.

Top marks to Karen, who braved mud & cliffs on her 4(censored)th birthday to see her brother for the first time since this

Sailing Adventures – wish you were here

Including multiple ports on the Greek islands of Kefalonia, Ithaca, and Corfu.

Flat seas steering with feet, beer in hand to force 7 all hands on deck & safety lines clipped to lifejackets


Meeting & feeding the locals

“go jump off a cliff” 🙂

@10 metres high into about 10 ft of water, it was like jumping off the roof of a 3 to 4 story apartment block, about twice as high as your bedroom window
