Meinten Sie: Von Oreoi wollen wir in den Ormos Pteleos und werfen den Anker in der Einbuchtung vor dem kleinen Ferienort Pigadi. Der Ankergrund ist stark abfallend und schnell sind wir auf mehr als 12 m Wassertiefe. Bei dem starken Wind scheint uns der Platz für die Nacht nicht sicher genug. Wir fahren weiter nach Achilleion. Hier werden wir von Andreas empfangen, der uns die Leinen annimmt. In Achillion liegen Morrings mit Ketten auf dem Grund und es sollte auf keinen Fall geankert werden. Auch an Land sind an den meistens Festmacherringen Leinen angeschlagen. From Oreoi we want in Ormos Pteleou and drop anchor in the indentation before the small resort Pigadi. The holding ground is falling away quickly and we are on more than 12 m water depth. With the strong wind seems to us the place for the night is not safe enough. We continue to Achillion. Here we are greeted by Andrew, who accepts us the ropes. In Achillion Morrings lie with chains on the ground and it should be anchored in any case. On land, are found at the most mooring rings linen.

In 4 nm distance are still other small islands, and seen from us before some fish farms. On the island are partly fish farms.

Only 3 miles away is an Anchor Bay, large and the water depth also fits protected to the west, and therefore perfectly suitable for the weather forecast. In the afternoon we lift the anchor and leave Theologos and sail the 3 nautical miles to the west. We lie down in the middle of the bay, can be good 60 m chain fall and wait. The next morning also starts like the wind predicted. We measure in our Max 42 kt in gusts and longer periods by 35 kt. There are also sometimes called "flying water". Due to the proximity to land, no large wave can build up and it can be good at anchor. We stay two days are here and work on the internet.
