I have just returned from sailing in the Ionian in Greece with my partner Elizabeth (Liz). In the spring we sailed up from Crete to the Ionian, the last area in Greek waters for me to explore. Our new second-hand yacht – a 1994 Sadler 34 – was bought in Rhodes about year and a half ago.
I have also recently sold my old trusty sailing boat ‘Celtic Gold’ – a Westerly Centaur -in southern Turkey.I wrote three books using this boat: ‘A Voyage around Ireland’, ‘Europe’s Lost Civilization; Exploring Mysteries of the Megaliths’, based on a voyage from Scotland to Malta, and most recently ‘Poseidon’s Realm: A Voyage around the Aegean’. It was very sad to see her go but we needed a larger boat for the children and grandchildren to stay.
