22nd July – Amorgos to Leros “Adios Amorgos”

Predict Wind is on the money, we are happy to make a break and head out with a reefed main into a sloppy confused seaway.  As expected, we spend the best part of two hours getting around the top of Amorgos before a sailing angle opens up and we enjoy a much less confused sea. 133 more words


20th July - Amorgos Investigations

The wind continues to belt through all day with speed at up to 40 knots once again.  I head for a walk to Chora, up a winding hill to the other side of the island directly across.  296 more words

18th July - Levitha to Amorgos

Leaving at first light, we watch the sun rise as we head out of Levitha towards Amorgos with a rising swell and wind.  It is a headwind which although annoying, is manageable in our yacht. 328 more words
