Sad images from Gaios

Friends you may remember after the drifting drama, when we were about to leave the Italian island of Panarea, I told you all we were heading for Gaios, on the Greek island of Paxos.

As you know we ended up much further south on the island of Kefalonia due to bad weather…

After coming through the Messina Straights we were heading for the red pin and ended up at the blue dot!

…We were actually supposed to be meeting furiends in Gaios, but they didn’t make it there that day either.

Luckily.

They arrived two days later to a scene that all boaters dread.

Not one but two boats dragged off their anchors in the storm and washed up on the rocks.

After speaking to people that were there the night of the storm our furiend Jose told us there was also another big boat very close to the rocks using his engine at full power to hold off them. Thankfully they managed to avoid the horrible experience of running aground. The other two boats were not as fortunate. I feel terrible for them but thankfully, as far as we know, nobody was hurt.

I’m really enjoying it here in Argostoli, it’s beautiful and there’s a lovely cool breeze in the afternoons.

Enjoying the breeze

When we get moving again next week, we intend to visit Ithaca and then continue North. Our furiends are heading south so hopefully we will still get to see Jose and his wife Jules and the pawesome Admirals of SV Fubbs, Ember and Joey very soon!

Bisous, Bailey

  5. oh my goodness, how terrible for the owners of those boats, but glad to hear that everyone was safe. Maybe it was good fortune after all that you weren’t there in the storm.

    You look very handsome there enjoying the air. Take care and be safe.

  8. Running aground does not look like fun at all. Weather can be tricky for sailors, I guess….. Thank goodness everybody is OK.

  10. Oh dear! A most unforgiving shoreline to go aground. Thankfully no one was seriously injured or worse. I’m happy to see that your mum has you on a leash “adventure boy”.
