Isokratia crosses Suez Canal arrives in Larnaca Cyprus Sunday 15th April 2007

Font size:

After crossing  seven seas ( Thailand golf, south China sea, Malaka straight, Andaman Sea, South Indian Ocean, North Indian Ocean, Arabian Sea, Red Sea, Isokratia entered the Mediterranean sea on Friday 13th April 2007 at 17.30 pm en route to Cyprus.

Some 7000 miles and 90 days sailing Isokratia arrived in Cyprus. The Suez experience was smooth apart form a bust up with the diving engineers boss who asked the extortionate price of US$1500.00 to replace 8 propeller blades. His arrogant attitude winded me up. I went onto a rage.  I ordered him and his engineer divers off the boat in a very uncivilised manner for which I am not proud but every germ needs his antidote.

Eventually we went underwater with Jui to do it ourselves.

Without weights it was impossible for me to go under water. Evidence of extra fat since I last dived! Fat floats! So I had to be the on board assistant and my assistant had to be the master engineer! One hour. That’s what it took us. Just one hour and we done both propellers. The $1500.00 requested by the so called expert represents  one years salary for a teacher in Egypt. You can see why I lost it with this idiot.

The fun was that he then stood ashore on the Yacht club some 50 meters away watching us  completing g the job.

The sail through the Suez canal was very smooth. We had to stop overnight in Ismailia. It was an experience but nothing to talk about. The only exciting moments were when some juggernauts were overtaking us.

Next and final part of the voyage will be from Larnaca Cyprus to Pereas in Greece. Approximately 10 to 14 days departure time.

Have fun My friends
