Yes, i have been to the Argolic gulf a couple of times. Love Monemvasia at the top end, and Navplion at the bottom. As you say, much less crowded than the Saronic.

Matt- planning to be somewhere in the Med in May. Probably Greece, but maybe Croatia for a change. I am consulting with my four sailing buddies.

Jeff - my crew get very anxious if I park the boat more than about 50 meters from a bar selling Mythos, but in any case keep a large emergency stock in the boat fridge

Alternatively, I will be in the area the second week of September. With extended family in tow I will unfortunately be onboard one of those rag and stick thingies

Jeff, I'm not sure now about crossing Lefkada - Paxos. Even for beer and dinner



Part of the family go by car and ferry from Venice to Igumenica towing RIB of course.
But some of them fly by airplane to Cephalonia/Kefalonia

So we go by boat from Mitikas to Kefalonia
We refuel in Itaka (marine petrol station) and I turned on NAVI at this point

Total was about 160 km (80 liter of the petrol) and we eat dinner at Kefalonia and go back at 5PM
It was strong thermal wind cased trouble on parts marked by red

I had to slowly go from wave and add power to climb next one (not each but quite often). Based on gap between waves nt sure if 7,5m RIB be able to go straight.

On the way to Kefalonia at 3 PM was not bad, but on 5 PM conditions were for challenge. I started to think that maybe I have to choose Kefalonia as destination and make many short trips. Or make trips avoid return after 3 PM

There is definitely quite a lot of open sea susceptible to high winds and waves to get here .... and even for free beers and dinner from a tight Britisher it may not be worth risking your boat .... (or family ) ...... perhaps we might meet up in Poland or Scotland sometime.
Looks great where you are around Kefalonia - have a great holiday
