A week on a sailing boat – Paxos island

After our early morning briefing for the day ahead, we headed to Lakka, a little bay on the north side of Paxos island.

This time, sailing was very smooth. I even had a little snooze and some great reading time.

After a couple of hours sailing and a lunch in the middle of the Ionian sea, we made our way through the emerald coloured bay entrance to find a space to ‘park’ for the evening.However, space being very limited we simply dropped anchor in the middle of the bay. This brought with it the fun of needing to use a dinghy to go out for dinner (more fun rowing back in the dark after a few drinks!).

Lakka is beautiful, the water was cristal clear and it was lovely rocking with it during the night.The next morning the flotilla headed to Monganisi, but as it was quite secluded again and little to see or do, we (captain Martin) decided to split from the group and go to Gaios instead, just a few miles north of the flotilla’s stop (both south of Lakka, still on Paxos).

The water was so calm that it allowed us to see a pod of dolphins on our starboard side (our right for you non-sailor types, we’re semi professional now). Amazing sight!

We then quickly made our way into Gaios to ensure a mooring space, as it can get quite busy this time of year and thankfully we found one fairly easily.Gaios is also a gorgeous little village, twice the size of Lakka and with many shops and restaurants to relax.

After a little stroll and some drone play time, we enjoyed a nice lunch on the main square to people and boat watch.Dinner was at Vassilis, a lovely typical Greek food restaurant where we nicely finished a beautiful day.

Another beautiful day in the Greek Islands…
