Dinner in Korfos with the boat only a few mts away.
Yesterday, Sunday, we had a fantastic sail from a small village called Epidavros to a smaller place called Vathi. The wind was quite high so we powered along with a new helmsman at the wheel{Robert} and everyone seemed to really enjoy it. We left Aegina on Saturday and spent the night in a small place called Korfos. Sunday, we sailed across to Epidavros to anchor in the bay, were we took the tender into shore and then took a taxi inland for 30 minutes to an old site of a theatre and a other archiogical sites. the theatre was so well preserved and quite spectacular. The taxi driver waited for us for an hour and then took us back, all for the price of 40 euro. Lunch in the bay then our fantastic sail{12 to 14 ksph} down to Vathi. This is a very small marina with a narrow entry, but very nice. We will be here possibly to Tuesday to wait out high winds so that we can sail over to Poros. We need the winds to be settled for the next leg , which is 90ks down to the island of Kythnos and then onto the island of Serifos,
