Greek cruise : Preveza to Athens

Hi

Just completed a one way charter across Greece.
We went through the Corinth Canal.

My first long trip as skipper.

I did the RYA Coastal Skipper course this summer and wanted to test my new skills.

OpenCPN helped me find this place. I an a fan and made a portable AIS laptop to use on charter boats.

Fair winds and following seas

Re: Greek cruise : Preveza to Athens

Hi

Enjoyed the trip.
Weather and winds could have been kinder but there you go.

The trip involves some long legs if you want to get it done in a week, so it is important to get going in the morning and take lunch during the journey.

We experienced some strong winds up to F7 with moderate sea state.

Some of this was on the nose so we suffered some slamming which does get wearing. We changed course to ease this.

A half day in Delphi was a nice break in the trip which we all enjoyed.

Waterproofs were important in some heavy rain so do take a light set. We only had 2 pairs of over-trousers so had to swap them round for watch keeping.

Ferries are good at avoiding you but cargo ships will not change course even in very open seas.

Will give more details of our passage plan if you wish.

John
