Escaping the Ionian: The Gulf of Corinth, Mick de Pomerai

In 2020, Covid-19 meant a very short season for many. Lovely as the Ionian islands are, they get very crowded these days, with boats cluttering every harbour and anchorage. Mick’s and Susan’s intention had always been to head east into the Aegean, and the week spent sailing through the Gulf of Corinth was wonderful and not long enough. With the Corinth Canal now closed indefinitely, there is perhaps no better time to explore this much-neglected cruising ground, which will be the focus of the talk.

This year, Mick is exploring the western Aegean and will be happy to discuss the experiences of applying for a Transit Log, necessary if you want to hop over to Turkey or Albania, and also a Biometric Residence (180-day) permit (jury still out on that one!) after the main talk.
