This is a very personal account from mid April to October 2011. In April we chartered a boat together with my daugter’s family and sailed for a week in the Whitsunday Islands that are in the Great Barrier Reef region of Queensland, Australia. From late May to late October, I sailed my boat, Thetis, in the Aegean. There were two separate trips: Samos to Levitha and back to Samos, Samos to Kea (Tzia) and back to Samos via the northern Sporades and the Cyclades. In addition, Thetis sailed from Leros to Samos and back to Leros, as well as several excursions near Samos.
From December 2010 to January 2011 we had a trip to Kenya where we saw many wild animals and other interesting sites. While this trip has nothing to do with sailing and cruising a photograph log of this trip can be seen at Our Trip to Kenya.
