Location: Fira, Santorini, Greece

We arrived at Santorini this morning after a pleasant overnight passage (one of our last, unfortunately). Watch team two and three took care of anchoring stern-to, so when the rest of us woke up, we were awed by the sight of sheer volcanic cliffs rising out of the water far above the companionway ladder. Well, I was, but at least after lunch our basic seamanship final exam took up most of the afternoon with its lengthy chartwork component. Still, it was pretty exciting when one considers how much we’ve all learned about navigation. Thanks for reading, and have a happy Easter!
