After we said goodbye to Alex, a new crew member arrived: Flaminia. We headed north west from Mykonos to Tinos where Lindsay jumped off and got the ferry back to Piraeus.
We had good wind on the beam on the way up and made good speed flying the code 0. While I was doing the sailing stuff in the cockpit Flaminia gave Lindsay some Reiki down in the saloon!
When you come into the main harbour at Tinos beware of a gap in the breakwater, which can look like an entrance but is actually part of the harbour wall that has been destroyed by storms and is just below the surface with waves breaking over it.
After an overnight stop in Tinos, where we caught up with Aussie friends Greg and Leanne who were anchored in the harbour on their cat, blue Nomads, we headed north west again to Andros. There wasn’t a lot of wind so we motored a fair bit, but were treated to a visit by a dolphin on the way.
We had another overnight stop in Ormos Plaka, a nice bay, but a bit exposed to swell so we kept going up the coast of Andross to the town of Batsi which had a sheltered anchorage. We stayed in Batsi for a couple of days and hired a quad bike and did a bit of a tour of the island.
