pirate Hi Everyone

Hi Everyone,

We are new to the forum and this is our first post.

We are husband and wife who have been boating for around five years in our 33' Neptunian Ketch. So far we've sailed to France, the Channel Islands and the Scillie Islands and lived aboard quite happily for periods up to six weeks at a time. We moved to live in Greece two years ago but couldn't bring ourselves to sell the boat so this year we're sailing her from the UK to Crete. We've got around 4 weeks work to do on the boat before we can set off then early April we plan to look for a good 5 day forecast and cross Biscay to make for the Spanish Rias. Any advice on the passage and any experiences of the Greek authorities would be much appreciated.

Hi Chris,
I'm sure you will get lots of advice on your passage. I want to say that the Spanish Rias are fantastic! Try to take enough time to really enjoy them.
