1000 NM upwind – day 8/17 (30 photos)


Glyfada (Athene) – Chorint  40 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 is the day 8, the 30.09.2010. Glyfada (Athene) – Chorint  40 NM

We left Athene at 9:30 with 15 Kn wind. Before Chorint canal the wind was much stronger (more than 35 Kn) and we had a wild ride till the canal. It was pretty exhausting but we made it. To transit the Chorint canal is a great sensation. We had also the luck to be the only boat going North. Very peaceful 3.5 NM. After the canal again 35 KN of wind so we decided to stop in Chorint and overnight.
