Sfakia report, November 2nd am
02 November, 2015 11:27

This morning, the yacht Boreas left early, heading, we heard, for Italy. The Daskalogiannis, however, did not leave this morning – it was supposed to go to Gavdos (via Loutro-Roumeli on Mondays, and to Loutro-Gavdos on Tuesdays), but were were told that since the wind is too strong out there today, the boat was cancelled. So the taxi boats will get some business today.



As you can see on the harbour webcam, work has restarted on widening the slipway now that it is November. We have to thank all the businesses who pressured the workmen to wait until the end of the season to do this noisy but necessary work (they wanted start in June, and then again at the beginning of October!).

Re. the ferry: maybe this has to do with it also:

No ferry services as seamen strike Monday, Tuesday - 2 November, 2015

Ferries stayed docked in ports across Greece on Monday, the first day of a 48-hour strike called by the Panhellenic Seamen’s Union (PNO) in protest at a fresh wave of austerity measures, part of a third bailout program signed by the country and its lenders.

The walkout, which was expected to continue on Tuesday, was described as a “warning” to authorities. The union was also set to join a 24-hour general strike called by ADEDY civil servants’ union and the GSEE private sectors’ union, for November 12.

And since the ferry only goes on Mondays and Tuesdays from Sfakia now, that means no ferries at all this week, unless the crew ignore the strike tomorrow or change the schedule.

I see the Daskalogiannis has just reached Gavdos, so they break the strike.
