The blog of HarryWS and my yacht Malua. We sailed Australia, the Pacific, Europe, Caribbean and USA. I built Malua in Canberra then cruised the Pacific through New Zealand, Tonga, Fiji and Vanuatu during 2004. Malua was in the Mediterranean in 2007 at the start of a cruise westwards round the world. After a trip up the French canals we crossed the Atlantic, cruised the Caribbean including Cuba. From the east coast of USA through the Panama canal to Galapagos then the wide Pacific to Australia.
Denny left Sydney yesterday and is currently in Dubai waiting for the connection to Athens. I have been sailing in the Ionian or more exactly laying at anchor. The above picture is just one of the anchorages I stopped at called I think Port Atheni. I had sailed from the mainland at a great place Astakos. Very few boat visit the harbour and the town reflects it. The people are friendly, The shopkeeper helpful. I stocked up on provision, fruit and veg plus a new phone card to access the internet. This year I have not used free WiFi but the 3G phonenetwork to access the internet. The access is great quick and available almost anywhere and at any time.
