Ribs in Greece

Hi

Just got back from 2 weeks sailing round the Greek islands. Had a very nice time with great weather.

Thought I would post some pictures of the ribs I saw while out there, maybe it was just the area we were in but not that many to be seen.

This next sequence made me laugh.

We were tied up for the evening in a place called Sovita. Along came this JCB and placed himself right on the dock side.

I guess it's a form of extreme fishing

1. Trailing the bait
2. Something takes a bite
3. Finaly landed on the side

Great piccies! I can't see any of Manos's RIBs though - I guess you didn't get as far as Santorini!

Nice photos TQ.

I suppose that you went sailing to the Ionian judging from the scenery. Quite a long distance from where we are but intersting to venture. Going through the Corinth Canal will be an experience never to be forgotten.

Where you went is very popular with Italians in August and Scadinavians during all of the summer months.

You did not see many RIBs because Greeks finish their summer holidays by the 1st week in Sept. For us is winter time after the temp goes under 30 C

I have heard that the weather was nice. I hope you enjoyed it. May be next year you want to try the Aegean. Aegean is a bit rougher than the Ionian but more islands to visit.

Looked like a permanent fixture not just an overnight cover. Had several zips/hatches in it for access.

I did contact Manos to see if we were in his area before we went.
It was on the west coast of mainland Greece, South Ionian.

We started from Nidri on Lefkada and went as far south as Sami on Kefilonia then back to Nidri.

I had a few people from RIBNet asking me about coming to see us. No one came unfortunately

May be next year and we will have bigger RIBs too with tents on them if you like that short of thing.

I can't imagine how people put up with the heat in the high season it was too hot for us in the middle of the day in Oct !!
All the holiday makers were in shorts and the locals were wearing big coats and complaining about the cold

The first 3 days the weather was not so good but then it went back to hot sun for the rest of the time. Very nice time thanks.

Not sure what we are going to do next year
