Another Wonderful Sail

Just back from a wonderful fortnight sailing around our favourite Greek Isles. This year we were on a Beneteau 323.
Her name is KIATO and she was really lovely to sail, nippy, sporty and really likes to go in a good sea breeze. We were making 8 knots of speed in her most days even when we needed to reef the sails in  23-27 knots of wind!  

One of the highlights of this trip was- we had a couple of dolphins swimming at our bow and then jumping, twisting and I'm sure trying to splash me. We usually spot dolphins but this was pretty special- perhaps they knew I would be  celebrating my birthday on this voyage and came to say hello, it put a huge grin on my face. However didn't manage to catch a photo of them to caught up in the moment I suppose. 


While waiting for the breeze to fill we would find a little bay all to ourselves, drop the anchor and have a swim. Each little bay we found we named- this one obviously was Emerald Cave bay.


My birthday weekend was spent in Fiskardo on Kefalonia Island.  Cards and presents, sailing, swimming and shopping. Cocktails and bubbly, picnics on board and dinner ashore.

What more could a girl want. A perfect sunset on a magical holiday!
