After I got to my boat it took me a few weeks of intensive work to install all the equipment I  had with me.

I installed a new radar, solar panels, wind generator, Chart plotter, displays, Wifi antenna, new wind and speed sensors, and a mast to carry all the stuff. I also had to do some painting (antifouling) and many small projects. (I will post a tour of my boot in a later post)

After that I finally was in the water again.

I was ready for some company. My brother and another friend each came for one week. We did some sailing between Corfu, Paxos and the main land.

After that I had some time to finish another big Projekt. I wanted to have all lines in the cockpit, so I don´t have to leave it for operating the main sail.

It took me a few days and the help of one of my boat neighbours, but I like the result.

In the beginning of June I picked up a special woman, and she stayed one month on the boat.

Be proceeded from corfu south to the other ionian islands and came back to corfu. We sometimes had good sailing conditions and found some amazing bays and places to anchor.
