1000 NM UPWIND – DAY 11/17 (32 PHOTOS)


Corfu – Otranto 84 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 11, the 03.10.2010. Corfu – Otranto (Italy) 84 NM

We arrived at Corfu the day before practically without a drop of diesel and water. First thing in the morning was to repair the genoa (we had problems with that sail the day before) and since it was Sunday, to find an open gas station. We found one in Gouvia near Kerykira. After fixing and preparing the boat we left Greece. We were in Albanian water for short time and then we headed to Italy. 84 NM without wind. All the sails were open, the engine running and we spent the whole day lying on the deck, taking sun and relaxing. We arrived in Otranto late in the night. It was the most relaxing day of the whole trip.
