31. My favourite Greek Island | sailing Ithaca | sail Greece | Lefkas Canal | Paradise

This week on Kawai we leave Preveza and navigate through Lefkas canal. We are the past in line as we enter the three.five mile canal and delight in watching the locals fishing on the banks of the canal.

We delight in a good downwind sail to our next anchorage, Vlikho Bay. This massive bay is whole of liveaboards and is perfectly guarded from the wind and swell. We use the time to freshen up, delight in some neighborhood hospitality nevertheless can not swim owing to the massive jellyfish population in the bay.

The next place is Ithaca. We get some great winds and sail the 20nm, with the wind a bit in advance of the beam, Kawai enjoys this wind angle and we adore this sail. Ithaca is my favourite Greek Island and has wonderful seashores, lush vegetation and some amazing anchorages.

We stop by Sarakiniko Beach, Filiatro Beach, Tilemakos Beach and Skhoinos Beach. We shell out most of our time in Filiatro Bay, delight in swimming, climbing, discovering and cleansing the neighborhood seashores. Sad to say the seashores have a wide range of litter so we shell out a few of several hours returning them to their purely natural beauty.

Our time at Filiatro will come to an stop as the weather conditions will take a switch for the even worse and we sail to the sheltered bay of Vathy, the key harbour in Ithaca.

About us:

Our names are Jason and Tracey and we traded our home, cars, company, work and safety for liberty, adventure, journey and dwelling basically amongst character and the seas on our 45 foot Hanse 445 sailing boat, Kawai.

We don’t know accurately wherever the winds will consider us at this phase but more than the next yr we hope to sail to Turkey, Greece, Montenegro, Croatia.

Jase enjoys earning journey videos and we resolved to upload to youtube to share our adventure. We seriously hope you delight in and sense free of charge to fall us a comment any time to chat or subscribe to comply with alongside 🙂
