The disabled helm
and we had a lovely sail over to Turgutreis - beam then a broad reach in force 4, dropping off as we got to the coast (although the wind was cold, so we dressed up well). We had decided to check in at Turgutreis as it was so quick and easy checking out last year, we just anchored off the beach for an hour. No such luck this time. We came into the monster marina
We had a very enjoyable last week in Lakki, though Lin's back and he narcotics knocked her out. We got a lot of jobs done that we have been endlessly putting off, including varnishing the oars and the outside wood work. On Easter Sunday Mike and Tree invited us to join them for lunch laid on for the clients at Leros marina - warm enough to sit out in the sun and eat roast lamb and salads.
The one downer was the the restaurants were closed all week, for redecorating, even our favourite Petrino's, so we had a lot of home cooking, though we went over to have a very good dinner with Mike and Tree in Leros marina cafe on Thursday night.
So we are at sea at last, and all signed up in Turkey. More to come....
