24 nautical miles
Well, this was my longest trip so far - approx 24 nautical miles - out to just past Cape Pila. I wanted to have a look round the cape to see about sailing to Potamas or Agia Napa some day.

I was travelling with Nigel and Bob. Bob sails and was taking the helm from time to time. Galini was sailing wonderfully, it was a really enjoyable trip. I'd like to find a way to mount my sighting compass so I can use it as a steering compass too.

I didn't have Cape Pila as a waypoint set and so headed off in roughly the right direction till we could see it! The sky was so hazy visibility was down to about 4 nautical miles.
