Galaxhi

Position 38:22.62N 22:23.29E

 

There is nothing like arriving in a beautiful old Greek harbour lined with traditional restaurants and bars to make you instantly forget the uncomfortable passage to get there.

As we approached Galaxhi we were guided to an alongside berth by a very helpful chap who took our lines and welcomed us.

He informed us that water and electric were available free of charge and then asked for a tip.

Well, since Mark was rather pleased with our superior berth he gave him some euros, however as the day proceeded we began to realise that this chap was the village madman who had no connection with the Port.

He spent his tip on copious amounts of red wine during the afternoon and began shouting and generally causing chaos around the yachts !

Late that evening, while we were dining out, a very large super yacht had to squeeze stern too into the cramped remaining space on the quay whilst Blue Magic, alongside, took up the rest of the berths – oops !

 

Next day we took the 10am bus to Delphi from the village square, a welcome break from motoring between harbours.

Delphi is one of the most spectacular ancient sites in Greece and was once considered to be the centre of the world.

It is set high up on the cliffs of MountParnassos with steep ravines plunging down to a valley full of olive groves that stretch out to the sea in the distance.

There is a well preserved ancient theatre and the remains of two temples plus an excellent museum housing some magnificent finds from excavating the ancient site.

We had an interesting time trying to find buses for our return trip and eventually shared a taxi from Itea with a couple of DutchUniversity students also staying in Galaxhi.

On arriving back at the boat, the Port Police were keen for us to change our mooring so that we were stern to the quay so we decided to go out into the bay and anchor ready for an early start to cover 85 miles out of the Gulf of Corinth and across to the Island of Ithaca.

In Greek Waters - Tips

When moving in Greek waters, ensure your blood is alcohol free. Greek marine police take very seriously a skipper under the influence of alcohol(and/or recreational drugs). Skippers of both small and large craft are tested regularly.
