Arrival was smooth and journey good considering how travel can be. Beautiful bay, secluded and sheltered. Loads of yachts moored up all over the bay, I guess as it is so very sheltered from all winds. Our flotilla has 9 yachts in total and some 30 souls travelling. We know where we are going and we sort of know where the wind will be. A bit of beating for a couple of days, then ...

Very warm day again but moderately cooler at 31 than they had 3 days ago - 47c. Sailed to Symi this afternoon, a very beautiful town with colourful houses perched on the side of the harbour. Had to have a banana ...

In order to see Rhodes' most-hyped attraction, the Grand Palace of the Masters, we got an early start since we were scheduled to pick up a rental car for our journey south into the reaches of the smaller towns at noon.
