Today we were sailing from the lovely island of Kalamos in northerly direction. All forecasts were showing southerlies around 10-15 knots, ideal for going north.
Already after 10 minutes we were quite surprised about the wind picking up fast. After 1 hour we only hat the genua out minimized to the second reef. We were still sailing around 10 knots and the wind gusted up to 50 knots!
After the Lefkas ferry bridge we decided to go to the brand new Preveza marina, which welcomed us with a heavy rain upon arrival.
Now we will stay here for the next to days until the wind looks favorable to continue to go north to Corfu.
Tonight we will find a nice taverna to celebrate Franz birthday.
