Big Sky Nauticat sailboat on water
Freighter that ran over our chain in the night -- on purpose!

September 21, 2014

We're in Cyprus!

We completed our 1,835 NM trek from Valencia Spain to Limassol, Cyprus, having arrived after an overnight sail from Kastellorizo yesterday. The journey was pleasant, not enough wind for Con, but a comfy 25 hours on the engine; 5 under sail.

Today, we exhausted ourselves by 1 pm cleaning the boat inside and out, plus three loads of wash. Feels good to set everything back into its place now that we're no longer underway.

Above is the photo of the freighter that nearly plowed through us at 4:30 am while we were sound asleep at anchor in Kastellorizo. The most belligerent part of that episode was that the captain knew we were there and what the consequences were and he did it anyway. Sheesh!

Thursday, we fly from Cyprus to Canada to be with our family and to meet our newest grand daughter, Katelyn.
