Autonomy - Green Energy
Lady Soul is now moored for one week in my favorite bay with my favorite taverna. I don’t have a generator and I didn’t have to start the engines once to have either hot water or to get the batteries charged.
Batteries are still full thanks to my photovoltaic panels and hot water is available through my solar panel :)
I‘ll give it a try for another week!
Thanks to Fred from Opua for taking the picture while fixing something at the mast top of his Broadblue 385
Yesterday we started at 06:00 at Kos Marina and due to the expected strong Meltemi we decided to get out of the main affected area. We had a terrific downwind sail to Panormitis, a very well protected bay on Symi island.
The bay was also affected by the meltemi and so we had gusts up to 39 knots, quite a challenge for the anchors.
After sunset quite a lot of sailors arrived looking for a place to hide from the strong winds and to anchor. Many of them were obviously participants of the Rodos Cup, which will start today from Kos Marina. They proved, that anchoring skills are probably not necessary for a regatta. One even rolled out the genua for mooring?! They produced quite a chaos amongst the yachts already on anchor. Luckily we stayed out of trouble:)
