We have returned from 8 days in Göcek (June 8 to June 16).  It was a good sail over in a moderate easterly.  After anchoring out in Göcek harbor the first night, we entered the Skopea Marina in order to get some work done on the boat by the crew at Emek Marine.  The biggest issue was a broken wind vane at the mast head that was stubbornly stuck in place. After a day of repairs, we sailed to Yassica Adalari Island for one night and the next day continued on to Sarsala Koyu bay in the Skopea Limani marine reserve where we were lucky enough to find a mooring.  The charter sailing season is in full swing and there are lots of boats around. Our friends Lynn and Dick from “Wind Pony” out of St. Paul, Minnesota (who we first met in Vanuatu 4 or 5 years ago) joined us and we had a good time hiking, swimming, and eating.  Very strong westerlies blew us back to Kaş.
