23.05.09: Vathy (Chersonisos Methanon, Peloponnisos) > Olympic Marina (Lavrion), 40,7 nm, 07H10-15H25.

the harbour of Lavrion, where we went three times walking seems us an horror between: the different charterboats/companies, the very noisy quay(s), the numerous cafés, the crazy joy-riding motor and cardrivers during night and ... the swell; neighbours in the marina were "running away" after one sleepless night;

24.05.09: Olympic Marina (Lavrion) > Voufalo ( N. Evvoia), 38,7 nm, 08H00-15H45.

Chalkis town sliding bridge passage: only at night at the moment the current is the weakest, go some hours before to Port Police office, tel. 090045930, new office at bridge square, street on the right, small street first on the right, passagetax *18,16 euro IMPORTANT UPDATE 2011: ( source C.A. - Dave Kitson, 26.07.2011 ) the pilot states that this bridge opens at weekends for double the normal fee. This is no longer the case. Apparently as part of the austerity measures, the Greek government has stopped paying overtime to the Port Police at weekends. So, even though they still have to be on duty, they are no longer prepared to open the bridge. It is closed anyway on Fridays so now the only times you can pass are Monday to Thursday nights sometime between 2200 and 0200. Before passing the bridge, you must go to the port police with your documents and pay the fee. For our 10.6M yacht, the fee was €18.77. Note however that the office is no longer at the location shown in the pilot. You now must walk to the bridge and get to the Evia side (if you aren’t there already). Stand with your back to the bridge and walk a very short distance up the road which goes ahead of you. A VERY short distance up, turn 45 degrees to the right up a small alley. The port police entrance is a short distance up the alley on the left; North bound - before our passage: south of the bridge - H with yachtclub,(developping works, 3 new pontoons with W & E, toilet block, showers -YC, gd welcome - finished summer 2009?) quay (free at our passage) -after our passage north of the brige : poss. mooring on the right bank quay, in front of the cafés, just before (S of) the Coastguard boat, we found a very nice restaurant-ouzeri-fishtaverna, the first at the waterside, coming from the harbour, Sto Teloneio, larger town, all shops and SM, all services, Bancomats, @-internetcafé, 25.06.09


View of Chalkis town sliding bridge, from the south side looking to the north

Nehalinnia alongside the Windswept, at the N-quay after the passage of the bridge

update 29.08.09 - South bound passage on our return: we took also the form of our N-going passage (May) with us to the Port Police, what was simplifying the paperwork; same passage fees *18,16; we berthed after the night passage at the S-harbour at one of the already by many small crafts and longstayers occupied new pontoons of the yachtclub/marina, water was already connected but not the electricity; very dark just after the bridge passage and up to the also poor lighted yachtclub/marina; yachtclub & office closed for holidays in full season!. alg. beoord.: middelmatig / appr.gén.: moyen / overal feeling: medium
