Photographer's Note

The Best and worse things in life seem to just come out of the blue... Let's just hope that at least most of the surprises life has in store for us are good...
This one was taken an route from Athens to Kos. We left Athens on a windless day, oily beautiful blue water, plenty of boats all around us. We sailed all through the day and until 2 O'clock we had a perfectly calm see and a good forecast. At around that time I finished my shift and went to sleep. An hour later I woke up feeling the 25 tons boat rocking and rolling... A maltemy (strong wind typical of this area, but almost never in this time of the year...). After long and hard 12 hours we got to Kos. Turned out that we were not the only ones surprised by the sudden storm - a whole regatta was stuck in Kos marina waiting for the sea to finally calm down (which took three days...). The three wonderful days we spent in Kos more than made up for it. It turned out to be a great trip after all!
