23/6 Shit day

We were planning to leave at 11, but we got stuck in T-Mobile office for 3 hours waiting in the queue.. When we arrived to the boat, we found that one of us had filled up the diesel tank with water. It took whole day to arrange taking all 200 liters of this beautiful mix out. Fortunately Luigi had installed electro-valves that cut off the tank from engine when it’s not running. Mechanics came with barrels and pumped all tank out and cleaned it thoroughly. Then we filled it up with new diesel. Expensive mistake, but quickly resolved.

27/6 Day 8: Zadar – Sali

25,2 NM – Clara leaves us in the morning, at 11 we set off towards NP Kornati. After one hour of motoring and briefing of new crew member we take out sails and with 10 knots in our back take lunch in silent and very pleasant dead-run. Around 16 we are cooked and as we are near to our destination, we can stop at anchor and take a beautiful swim. An hour later we are excellently landing in Sali – we are getting well coordinated. 🙂
