If you want to avoid the paperwork etc clearing in and out of Turkey
, leave Rhodes (Mandraki harbor) for Kastellorizzo (also marked Megisti on Greek charts
, and Meis in Turkish). It's the last Greek island going east and lies about 5 NM south of the Turkish harbor at Kas. It will likely take you longer than 10 hours but I've done it within daylight by leaving Rhodes at dawn.
guy at Kastellorizzo is relaxed about paperwork, so don't worry about the fact that you probably cleared out at Rhodes and got your Greek transit logged stamped. Just show your passports and pay a small fee for anchoring
You can either anchor
at Kastellorizzo or tie up at one of the tavernas. Wait here for a settled weather forecast
and then head
to Cyprus - nearest landfall is Latchi.
