Saturday October 29. Light at the end of the Wind Tunnel

Written by Jack van Ommen on October 29th, 2011

Please, let it be a treat and not a Halloween trick. The wind predictions from Poseidon http://www.poseidon.hcmr.gr/sailing_forecast.php?area_id=naeg have been quite accurate and I plan on heading into the haul out facility on Monday.

According to the locals this spell is very unusual for this time of the year. Usually the Meltemp ends in September. I am still a little hestitant to book my flight but it looks like I will most likely take the night ferry at 00.30 hours on Tuesday and arrive at 6.35 in Piraeus and fly out of Athens at 14.10 arriving on SAS from Copenhagen at 19.35 at Schiphol.

I had a very pleasant evening with Berndt and Birgit on “Rebell”. They have only started sailing in the last three years but they have accumulated their sailing and expertise very fast. Beautiful boat. They also plan on leaving Monday for Cesme for their winter stay in Turkey.

I ran into a very nice Turkish couple in Chios, she is a sailor. Ece and Abdulla Aktul. They live in Izmir and they told me good things about a new marina in Seferihisar and I belive this is the web site  : http://www.teosmarina.com/?sayfa=sayfadetay&kategori=alt&id=16 For those in my area, you might wish to check it out.
