Passing through the Corinth Canal was spectacular. It is a short canal, only 3.2 miles long and quite narrow with high vertical walls on each side. Apparently it is the one of the most expensive canals per mile in the world. It cost us 200 euros!!
There was no wind today so once we left the canal we motored all the way to a little bay and town called Galixidhi. It sounds like a town from an Asterix cartoon. It is beautiful with a cathedral and an old town and centuries ago it used to be a prosperous port until it was conquered by the Turks. Today it only offers shelter to a few yachts and it is no longer used as a commercial port.
We saw a large group of dolphins on the way here which was very exciting but they didn’t come over to play despite the boys tapping the side of the hull to call them over…
