27 July 2007

A beautiful calm cruise up the coast with two friends. Approx 7.5 nautical miles. Started off with very little wind. Then got becalmed, Nicos in the sailing club rescue boat came out and offered a tow back. We said we hoped for a little wind and so he said if we take the sails down he will know we need a tow back. Out came the iced coffee... almost no sooner said than we get wind and are sailing at 3-4 knots.

We look for a nice buoy to moor to, up near Dkelia Garison. Fist time I had pick up a buoy so enjoyed coming round into the wind as we approached to stop as we came alongside. Dave had a problem grabbing the buoy so during the week I bought a boat hook.
