We sailed on Ereikoussa, Kerkira (Corfu), Continental Greece, Ambracian Gulf Lefkas and surrounded Islands.

The contrast with Croatia was big: A lot less sailboats on anchorages (sometimes on the main coast I was the only boat), no buoys, no charges to anchor.

Perhaps it was just causual but I got much more wind on Greece, sometimes too much. On the mornings there was little wind but on the afternoon it really blows hard and for more time than in Croatia (where it blows also in the afternoon), sometimes only slowing down after sunset.

But I have liked and next year I will sail there extensiverly.
