    We were told about this beautiful small bay b a gulet Captain we got talking to in Soyut, so we thought it was worth a stopover. When we arrived in the tiny bay - it was a little after 4pm and we had had a screaming sail around from Soyut. Winds were fairly steady at 12-15 knots from the North East (not forecast from there of course) Dropped the anchor in the sand (not on the rocks) in a little over 12m towards the western shore and put out around 55m. There were 5 other boats in the bay, all but one left within 2 hours. The wind slowly started to increase and change direction, veering and backing between west and north west, averaging around 17knots. It made the evening meal in the cockpit slightly different! Kept a good eye on our position until nightfall - we were rock solid but swinging through 90 degrees all the time. Wind picked up a little over night and at one stage was gusting 28knots + Bit of a noisy night, which disturbed some, but we knew we were safe. Upped anchor at 6am as the sky was just beginning to glow, the moon had waned to just a tiny crescent, so not much help there. Left the bay on an easterly heading - main and Genoa set. Within 30 minutes - not a puff - it was like a mill pond! Got an absolute belter of a sunrise though. Will come back here on a more benign day to explore further though.

    I love the remote stoney surrounds. Wind blew us off at 20nm about, all night swinging away.Seven gullets came for breakfast and were gone by 12. Seven ! The anchor became stuck behind a rock ,during the night there was the grind of the gypsy slipping, and it took a few hours in the morning to figure out how to get the anchor out! (still in 20nm of wind)Little drama.loved the goats on the beach though ; i think we will learn how to put lines to shore for next time. Come in the south side of the island the north entrance is very narrow.

    This is our 3rd time to anchor here. This time we spent 3 days. Tied back twice. Great holding! Nice swimming and a few turtles. We even had wind from the south and was calm water.
