Incredible. What a day. We started early; leaving Karpathos/ Pigadhia at 10 o’clock on the motor. There was no wind, but that soon changed. With Bft 2 we raised the sails and Luna started to dance.
When the wind increased to Bft 3 and later to Bft 5-6 Luna came in her element and literally started to prance over the waves. It was a great joy to steer her over the waves and keep her on course. We all enjoyed the way Luna kept going, reaching a speed of 8 knots. But it was not only the speed. It was the beauty of it all: the clear blue sky, the sun, the wind, the waves, the salt in the air, the ever changing colour of the water. Then at about 6 o’clock the sky turned deep red, and darkness overtook us. Otto took over and skillfully steered us safe and sound into this dark but secluded bay of Lindos / Rhodos. The next day we discovered that Otto had brought us to one of the nicest bays in the Aegeïsche sea.
It was pure joy to participate in this trip. Thank you Otto!
