Friday Morning May 18 Leaving Hydra

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

A nasty rain storm came up and made harbor a very nasty place to be moored/anchored. The pictures below show some of the mayhem. Boats tossing like match boxes, pulling with incredible violence on their anchor and mooring lines. My French neighbors came to my rescue because my windvane was in danger of being busted to pieces against the quay. My rope scope was stretching too much, whereas they use all chain. Another French catamaran on my starboard side also aided with another line to their boat.

I am going to try and anchor out in the Poros Strait and will most likely not have internet for a day or more.
