ON TO GREECE—CORFU HERE WE COME

We made a final visit to the walled City of Dubrovnik yesterday to people watch in a café and then have dinner.

Dubrovnik, like every other town we have visited in Croatia this spring, is very laid back in the off season.  But it gave Carol a chance to wear her gold ballet slippers–no boat fraus on Destiny.

The weather was sunny during the day, but overcast by late afternoon and threatening rain as we made our way back to the boat.  We were feeling a little less waterlogged until we awoke to heavy rain clouds—and fog this morning.  Jolie had to wear her pink slicker to go ashore for her morning walk.

By this time tomorrow we hope to be on our way to Corfu which is an overnight passage of just over 200 NM.  The forecast is for NW winds in the 10-15 kt. range which should be favorable for this passage which takes us south on a heading of about 161 true past the coasts of Montenegro and Albania to the island of Corfu off the northern Greek coast.  At our average speed of 6 kts. (which we hope will be mostly under sail) we should arrive at our destination by late afternoon on Wednesday.  We are docked next to our friends on Glass Slipper and Excalibur who will be heading for Corfu at the same time–and it is still raining.

We have had great internet connections in both Italy and Croatia and will be “off line” for a few days while we check our alternatives in Greece.  Corfu here we come!
