Last update July 10 2005.

Took us a long time to get all our data back again. Now we promise to update a bit more frequent.

When we left Fethiye Bay June 7 we headed for Goçek. This is a nice little cruising ground and we really like it up there. June 9 we sailed on to Baba Adasi. Terrible place to drop anchor. It rolls like a roller coaster.

From June 10 till June 21 we stayed in Marmaris Bay. Met a lot of people who will sail with us to India in October and a lot of other nice sailors. Took care of ''car-troubles'' in the meantime (we have our car in Turkey, which gives us a headache every now and then).

June 22 till June 27 we've been in Simi, Panormitis Bay.

Beatifull place, bad holding though because of the grass and weed. From June 28 to June 30 we followed the coastline of Turkey again.

July 1 we've spent a day at Fourni Island (Greece). Met some Dutch people who own a house on this island. July 2 to July 6 we spent our time in Alaçati, where we arrived at the grand opening of the marina (free party....) and met the Dutch boat Beau IV.

July 7 till now we went to Greek waters again, to end up in Mitilini, Lesbos where this update comes from.

Current position

We're at Mitilini harbour at this moment, position 39 06' N - 26 34' E.

Plans

First we'll sail the Greek waters from Lesbos to Rhodes. Then in October 2005 we'll join the Med-India rally (which we help organise) and visit a diversity of countries at the Red Sea and on the way to India. Detailled information on www.redsearally.com.

Next (2006) we will go from India to Maldives, Thailand, Maleisia. We hope to get in Hong Kong and Japan in 2007.
From then and there on we want to sail from Alaska to the US, and then down to Mexico, Costa Rica and by Galapagos back agai. Eventually we want to get to New Zealand and Australia. On our way back then we willvisit the Chagos Archipelago, Seychelles, Madagascar, South Afrika.

When we still have time and money left we go by St.Helena and Carribean back to the Netherlands, or we might sell the boat somewhere on the way........
