Sailing/Party with the Australians

A few days ago I was asked if I would like to go and get a boat from Lefkas to Plataria.

I had time, so we drove to Lefkas (about 1 hour) and 7 hours back to Plataria. There was not much action (no sailing), but it was still a nice experience on a different boat.

The next day I could go with the boat and 8 young Australians to Sivoto, just 1 hour away. The boat was part of a flotilla of 4 boats and about 35 people.

Just before the departure Mike, who organizes the boats and the skippers, asked me if I want to go 3 days as the skipper. I accepted, packed some cloth and then we were on the way. Another skipper came with me to Sivota to show me how everything works and left in Sivota.

The next days where a lot of fun. Swimming, sailing, anchoring, barbecue and a lot of party.

I had a great time with the Australians. And I had an excellent crew on board.

On the last day I invited them on my boat for a few drinks and I did not know that you can fit 13 people in my small cockpit.

With my drone I shot some footage and cut a video of the 3 days:

  1. Great to see footage of the Topdeck trip. Our daughter, Daisy, is the trip leader and she seems to be having a good time. Thanks for sharing it.
