1000 NM upwind – day 9/17 in HDR… (23 photos)


Chorint – Nafpaktos 60 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 9, the 01.10.2010. Chorint – Nafpaktos 60 NM

North, here we come… the nice weather was over, this was the third day with strong wind and occasional sun. We left Chorint in the morning and arrived to Nafpaktos at 17:00. Wind 25 to 30 Kn and mostly cold. The harbour in Nafpaktos was small but nice. A lot of bars and, i would say, the most beautiful girls we saw in whole Greece.

  1. Sailing Greek waters, is always a fantastic experience my friend.
    Perhaps you and the rest of the crew have had the opportunity to enjoy life the Greek way.
    Be Happy
