1000 NM upwind – day 1 and 2/17 (20 photos)


Day 1 Porec (Croatia) – Wien (Austria) – Antalya (Turkey) – Finike

Day 2 Finike – Rhodos (Greece) 117 NM

I was lucky to be a part of this fabulous adventure 1 and half-year ago. We had to transfer a 36 foot long sailing boat from Finike (Turkey) to Funtana (Croatia). We made it in 17 days and we left 1142 NM behind us. The route was Porec (Croatia) – Wien (Austria) – Antalya (Turkey) – Finike (Turkey) – Rhodos (Greece) – Kos (Greece) – Amorgos (Greece) – Mykonos (Greece) – Athene (Greece) – Chorint (Greece) – Nafpaktos (Greece) – Corfu (Greece) – Otranto (Italy) – Monopoli (Italy) – Vieste (Italy) – Vis (Croatia) – Murter (Croatia) – Unije (Croatia) and home, Funtana. It was the adventure of my life, the 17 best days ever.

Here are days 1 and 2, the 23 and 24.09.2010 Porec – Wien – Antalya – Finike – Rhodos 117 NM

which we practically lost on preparing the boat. We left Finike on 24.09.2010 at 13:30 and arrived on Rhodos at 5 in the morning next day. Strong wind the whole night, a lot of “traffic” but it was fine. The radar and gps worked great. A night to remember.
