Re: Live blog - Lefkas to Stoupa on Jaguar 27 'Thassos'
Here is a little update as our 'repo' sail draws closer. I am afraid the title is already out of date.
The boat was originally called 'Thassos' after the Greek island and so she remained all her life from 1978 until last year when the previous owner changed it to "Business Time". When the matter of change of registered owner cropped up, I thought I was given free reign to change the name again. However, changing a boat's name is considered bad luck and it transpired that she was still marked "Thassos" and still considered to be "Thassos". Hence, I have officially 'changed' her name back to Thassos, rounding the circle.
I met up with my crew, James and Jeffrey, and we discussed potential itineraries. Our strategy is to avoid the crowds of the Ionian islands, get ahead of ourselves early on and enjoy the relatively 'unspoilt' Southern Peloponnese. The indicative itinerary is looking like this.
