Sssh... Sssha...

7/7 15:22 - Ios - Un....ing believable. This morning, an big, beautifull, one year old Swan 62 (!) pulled up beside us. It's called Orfeo and it's definitely one of the most beautifull yachts I've ever seen in my life.


This amazing, world famous, one of a kind, J Class yacht entered the humble port of Ios. And I've now got tons of pictures of it.

I can't believe it. Just a couple of boats away from us is Shamrock V. Respect!

So, as you might have guessed, we're not going anywhere today. If you need to find me, I'll be the guy drewling up and down the quay. (And I'm not the only one, btw. ;-)

42? What was the question again?

Shamrock V on Ios? Did they convert it to a charter/partyboat?

Swan 42, for me, used to be the answer to the Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything. Now I've had the chance to take a peek over the edge of my own universe, well... Anyway, the Brazilian owner of Shamrock V, his girlfriend and a kid, as well as the 9(!) crew did have quite a party going on.

Michiel, Rob, Tom and Tino: hope you take good care of 'her'. ;-)
