Friday 23 May 2014 From Pouru Bay, Crete to ASTIPALAEA

We set off quite early but an engine problem, the alternator, caused us to sail to Nikolaos Marina for repair. Bob contacted marina on VHF and we were directed to space. We moored bows to with double lazy lines. Met Niklaos the talkative engineer who fixed the engine. I washed our laundry and coloured my hair. The marina charged us thirty-five euros for the night so we left early next morning even though they gave us a complimentary bottle of wine and one of oil.
