June, 22nd-26th:: Wir are not in a
hurry to leave the harbour. There is a lot to do: To get rid of the Egyptian
sand which covers the boat, to fill up the food stock for the next weeks,
to get used to the heat and mainly to watch soccer,because of the world
championships in Germany right now. Unfortunately we left the athmospere
behind in Germany.
After the gulets and motorboat have left we
have the chosen berthing for the first night all to ourselves - almost.....because
early in the morning we are attacked by mosquitos.
June 29th: Anchor up at 5.30 just before sunrise. After a long tack with a little bit of sailing wind we reach our favorite bay in Fethiye Bay without any spectacular events - only a few fish died of laughing when Rainer tried to catch them.
June 30th: The water is pretty cold
early in the morning - but somebody has to loosen the rope ashore.
July 1st: The first game of the evening
is England versus Portugal. We choose a small bar to watch the game. A
few British soldiers have the same idea -maybe on holiday from Irak, it
is apalling how young they are. Despite lots of beer the British boys
don't loose their face because of the British defeat, some even cry.
