Last Sail for 2019 completed
Finally the 2019 season has come to an end.
After almost 2.500 nautical miles the sails have been washed and will be taken down this afternoon.
On the last trip I visited some of my favourite places like Palionissos, Lipsi and Arki. Almost no other boats and peaceful mooring places and some nice and relaxed people.
Now the preparation for the winter starts.
The 2020 season will start end of March.

End of the season sail
Spontaneously I decided to go sailing tomorrow. We still have temperatures around 26 degrees every day and lots of sunshine.
Let’s see where my single handed trip will take me to.

Water has still 25 degrees
At Palionissos we‘re enjoying the tranquility of the end of the season.
The water is still warm with 25 degrees and at the moment we are the only yacht here. The best way to relax.

After the storm last week and some Sahara rain Lady Soul definetly needed a wash down.
Now it started raining like an Asian monsoon and we should get a nice clean boat after all.

8 Beaufort in Ikaria
On our "end of the season" sail we stopped in Evdilos, a harbour at the north side of Ikaria, where we are the only transiting yacht.
We choose the northern port as the weather forecast predicted strong southerlies up to gale force.
This lovely island is a bit out of sight by the majority of tourists as well of the yachties but it is a lot more original Greece than most of the more visited islands.
Now we use the storm to explore the island by car.

Meet the Dolphins
Today we motored from Kalymnos to Lipsi when a family of dolphins joined us for about 10 minutes.
They were all around Lady Soul and it was great fun watching them playing and jumping.

The Meltemi is back. The North-West summer wind arrived last night with up to 40 knots (8 Beaufort). Even in the very protected Kalymnian bay of Palionissos all boats were jumping around on their moorings.
This will continue until tomorrow!
