Following a tanker through the Canal of Korinth

Today we crossed the Canal of Korinth again.

We had to follow a 109meter tanker, that was tugged through the canal.

With a bean of 17meters it was quite a spectacular.

The problem was, that the speed of the tugboat was only around 3.5 knots and the current going the same direction was about 3 knots as well, so we hardly had enough speed for the rudders to keep Lady Soul straight. I had to reverse a couple of times.
