2016 - explore Greece by small RIB again :)

Hello folks.

Tow RIB to UK seems to be expensive (B&B, marina, trip, ...)
So I be in Greece again in 2016 (if be alive still ).

Warsaw - Triest (Italy) 1100 km by highways (14 hrs of driving)
And ferry from Triest (Italy) to Patra (Greece Peloponese) 26 hrs in cabin and sunbed ( very tired )

Small, light RIB, good for tow, for such long distance.
When I use it in Greece I wish to have 0,5-1m longer boat
When I look at petrol consumption and tow it I wish I have a little smaller one so I think this one is optimum for me

- I'm going to go with trailer for service, they will check bearings, brackets
- They will add shock dumpers and tool to flush brakes (now I do not have it)
- I'm going to have spare bearings and brakes with me (and some knowledge "how to change it".

I'm going to be in 4 places. 1 week per each place:
Between each place is about 3-4 hrs of drive and tow the RIB




1. Messina Bay Ag.Andreas

2. Laconian Bay (Plitra or smaller one village 10 km South from Plitra)

3. Corynthian Bay ( https://www.google.pl/maps/place/Lim...c63f4d!6m1!1e1 )

4. Mitikas Greece continent in front of Lefkas and Itaka Islands

There is 70% of probability that friend of mine join me with motorboat STING 530 (and 3 kids also) in point number 3 and 4. It be much safer to explore Greece in 2 boats than 1 I suppose. Maybe someone from RIB.net join us ?

Small islands with wild goats (have to be careful to avoid be eaten by them - avoid tubes to be eaten)

I'm boring of winter so I'm preparing some plans (I have already booked tickets for ferry and made some bookings, places to sleep). In places, 1,2,3 marinas are for free.

In 4 probably the same

Ok, Place number one and trip in opposite direction:



They call it MESSINA. Nice unusual architecture called TOWER buildings, small villages.

All flags there are places to see for snorkel like this one mentioned below:

Place number 4 is to explore Itaka, Kefalonia, Lefkas (I know that West coast is open for waves so I must be lucky to visit Porto Kaski), maybe will make a trip between Kefalnia and Zakynthos to visit famous wreck beach

Click on links. They will open TripInView tool and show these pictures.
You can fly over these places.

One day in the week I do not teach students at University and it is Wednesday I made some investigation, use google and TripInView in December. I found some places where nobody speak English (like number 2). So if someone think about visit them be happy to share my research. Some places have really reasonable prices and I do prefer area without big hotels and a lot of tourists. I like to see local people around.

I have bought tickets because ferry from Triest to Patra offers 30% discount for early bookings. You can shift a little day of the departure further if you be not able to be on time (for example) by simple phone call. I like to keep my plans in some secure place like RIB.net if admin don't mind.

Another great adventure Mat ... look forward to seeing the photos
You make me feel so lazy - I'm just dragging the boat to Paxos yet again and simply lolling and diving around the island with the odd jaunt across to the mainland; Sivota, Ammoudia and possibly Parga ;;;; perhaps we will finally get round to a couple of days down to Lefkas this year ? who knows ;-)

Unfortunately Jeff I'm old man but "boater" since 3 years only. Have started very late and I'm sorry about it. So I'm still excited. And I have 3 kids and try to fill the days with adventure (explore empty places, snorkel, a little fishing, look for treasures use MINELAB metal decoder and Garret pinpointer), explore places by boat. There is not any fun for Family to go by car and see some city and ruins. But they excite to go by boat and explore them from the Sea site. My personal win: 6 weeks in Greece and kids (2x13 and 1x16) have not smartphones and laptops (during this stay). All the days on fresh air not use any electronics (except navi on boat). I even have 3 persons kayak Gumotex and kids use it in quite area.

I'm so sorry that Paxos is out of my range. I have chosen Mitikas because a lot of things are in the range and return to Patra is easy.



From example from Mitikas to Poros (Kefalonia) I have 70 km. In Poros be other Polish family having boat. On the way Itaka.

From Poros there is only 30 km to Zakhyntos and famous beach with wreck:



This is the place on South part of attached map
