THE DOWN SIDE TO `WINTER IN GREECE’ … 18th MARCH 2011

***  Double Click on photo to enlarge.

Not any worse than we experience at home in Perth, Western Australia.

* THE HAIL SOUNDED LIKE BEING PEPPERED BY A THOUSAND MACHINE GUNS! … LIPSI ISLAND, GREECE *

The heavy hail did worry me a little, as it sounded like a million machine guns were firing on the yacht. 

P1010013

* MORE HAIL! *

The most serious aspect of the storm was the tidal surge of over half-of-one metre.  This lifts the yacht high against the wharf … and all the fenders pop-out and rest on the deck of the wharf.  This leaves Déjà vu rubbing against the concrete side of the wharf.   

VERY UNSUITABLE AND NOT A THING I COULD DO ABOUT IT … until the breeze, then blowing at 50 knots, died down!
