It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go.⁠

We are based in the #Ionian #Sea on the island of #Lefkada (also known as #Lefkas) on the eastern side of the island in #Vliho Bay, 45 minutes from #Preveza/#Aktion airport. ⁠
This location is ideal for quick and easy access both the North and South Ionian #sailing #areas. Many of the #harbours you visit are #traditional #fishing villages. If you want to #escape the crowds to #relax and #swim from the #yacht then there are plenty of secluded #bays and inlets.⁠
...

#WisdomWednesday.. it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears.⁠
