On Friday, 14th of October 2011 it started to drizzle. Over the next three days, the picturesque island of Spetses experienced more rainfall, than the whole of the year. Still, the unflappable locals came up to me saying “gouri”, “gouri”- the Greek expression for good luck!

The archipelago south-east of Naxos consists of four small islands and a few uninhabited isles. Most crews usually ignore this group of islands on their way to Ios, Santorini or Naxos.
