    Have been to Monemvassia a few times and this time for the first time in the inner part of the harbor with anchors and stern lines, as almost all the places on the quay walls are occupied by lengthways fishing boats. The next morning we found out while sailing that our anchor had got caught on an old mooring block with chains and ropes. After diving for an hour in the 6 meter deep harbor basin, we finally had the anchor free again. Anyone who goes to the inner part of the harbor should therefore do without anchors.

    Waren schon einige Male in Monemvassia und lagen dieses Mal das erste Mal im inneren Teil des Hafens mit Anker und Heckleinen, da nahezu alle Plätze an den Kaimauern mit längsliegenden Fischerbooten belegt sind. Am nächsten Morgen stellten wir dann beim Auslaufen fest, dass sich unser Anker an einem alten Mooring-Block mit Ketten und Tauen verhakt hatte. Nach einer Stunde tauchen im 6 Meter tiefen Hafenbecken hatten wir den Anker endlich wieder frei. Wer in inneren Teil des Hafens geht sollte daher auf Ankern besser verzichten.

    Fantastic welcome by friendly port guy. €7.50 (without water as we didn’t need it) for 13.1m . Well worth the walk to the old town and to the top of the rock. Spectacular views! We were joined by some large motor yachts later in the day and overnight so were disturbed by their continual generators. Just unlucky to be right next to them!!!

    We stayed 2 nights on the quay. Put 50m chain out, the bottom is hard sand and sheet rock. Managed to get a hold the first night and visited the Old Town in the morning, well worth the walk. The 2nd afternoon we had a blow of 25kts from the west and the anchor let go. Tried pulling it in to reset it but it just skidded across the rock. We ended up alongside against a friends boat. Port police came and had no issue with us rafted but sent the 2 boats singularly alongside away. It then blew over night 25kts from the west and made it tough to get off in the morning.
