I have also been given the job of anchorman, which simply means I have to push either an UP button or DOWN button on a control switch at the bow of the boat to raise and lower the anchor. Turns out it's a rather important job.
Amorgos Island has some unusual attractions that have been used in some film footage. The shipwreck in my photos, was put there on purpose for the filming of the movie The Deep Blue and I think the monastery we visitied was used in the James Bond film For Your Eyes Only. Amorgos was also a chance for me to meet all the other Gap Adventures skippers. ALL four of the boats were in Amorgos today and we were able to tie up three of them together. With a group like this drinking like sailors is not just an expression, it is a right of passage. In Greece, the local firewater is Ouzo and I have no problem saying out loud that it sucks!
