We checked the Pilot guide and the charts and decided that the town of Finicke or Finikas on the southwest side of the island of Syros would be a nice protected place to wait out high winds. We sailed and motor-sailed the 27 miles to Finikas, arriving before 14:00. Lucky us, there was plenty of space to dock on the wall in the area that we wanted. This quay turns a corner and we wanted to be on the outside wall on the inside of the corner. In that position the expected northerly winds would blow us away from the dock, rather than hitting the boat sideways. Perfect location. And someone even helped with our dock lines this time. Shortly after 14:00 boats started arriving one right after another. Well before 17:00 all dock space was filled.

Next was a bus trip to the largest town on this island. But we are watching The Princess Bride now so writing about this trip must wait until tomorrow. LOVE this movie!
