The boat is a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440 Check it out here
We will be moving the boat from Kefalonia to Corfu.
These waters are steeped in mythology and history. Nobody is absolutely certain of the route taken by Ulysses in the Odyssey but it was certainly through these waters.
We can take whichever route suits us and the weather. There are lots of passage planning decisions to be made here: west about or east about through the “Lefkas Canal”, then down the coast of Corfu or down the mainland coast?
As we pass modern day Preveza we will be coasting Actium, site of the battle where Octavian (Caesar Augustus) crushed Antony and past the modern Cleopatra marina.
The routes shown here are no more than suggestions. We have no fixed itinerary.
We can decide on where we want to stop en route. We can decide on daily distances, when we want to start, if we want to anchor for a lunchtime swim, we can even decide whether we want to do an overnight passage.
Hopefully the aspiring skippers will take charge for the day and create a suitable passage plan.
If you are interested in this voyage we would really suggest you do a bit of research on the routes and the ports at which we might stop. Google Earth is a very good place to start. If you are really interested try to get hold of one of the excellent pilot books for the area.
Whatever route we choose we will be sailing past very beautiful islands through “wine blue” waters. Lovely little ports with great tavernas, good food and hopefully a cold beer.
