Bruno and I therefore decided to lift anchor and attempt to tow them in, which thankfully, all worked beautifully as calm flat seas, but we did arrive in the dark after a spectacular sunset 'en route'.
As we have been in this anchorage all summer, it was not a problem ....then we managed to assist Barb and Con to set their anchor securely by pulling Bigsky in reverse, which weighs by the way 34 tonnes!! (Pacific Pearl is 15)
However, of course it was Saturday the 15th August...THE biggest weekend of the summer and a public holiday, so absolutely impossible to organise a mechanic until the beginning of the week. In the meantime, Tony 'Ron Glas' helped Con to diagonise the problem....'a suivre' after the mechanic's visit tomorrow........
UPDATE 20th August...apparently the problem is in the fuel pump, new part being sent down from Germany....today? tomorrow?
Con kindly invited us all (Ron Glas, Elsa May & Pacific Pearl) over to the local taverna for dinner on the 15th to celebrate their wedding anniversary..so kind of you...merci beaucoup! Great night!
