Amorgos - the island of "The big Blue"
is close to the heart of the Cyclades. The distance to Paros and Naxos is about 30 nm,
and these 2 islands have connections with many ferryboats in the summertime
every day, as well as there are flights from Athens and direct from the
european cities. The island stretches from SW to NE and has high mountains
and steep cliffs falling to the often windy and rough cycladic sea.
the harbour and maintown which has some Tavernas and bars, a (modern)
bakery, and a relaxed summerly touristical
life. Mooring is
on the most inner part of the big quai, which is used by the big Ferries.
The wind is coming from N or NW with many waves and that causes swell.
By that reason, smaller boats mostly moore behind the Ferryboatīs quai,
there is space for about 15-20 boats.
In the high season, middle of July to middle of August, the mooring-places at the quai are full, and there is always a big trouble to be expected (in the afternoons at arrival and mornings at departure of charterboats and others) from chain-disorders either by neighbourhood boats or the ferryboat, that drops itīs chain 250m at least cross all the other boatīs chains... if someone wants to leave early in the morning, it is recommended not to stay on the quai, or drop only a short anchor or leave the quai before the ferryboat arrives.
and electricity is
available, there is a greek guy coming in the evenings. Diesel is available
but be careful: sometimes
Diesel or Gasoline is offered and transported from old big canisters,
surely there is rust and other engine-endangering soil in the Diesel...it
is very recommended to use a filter before and while filling the
Police is exactly on the opposite in the building on the
corner on the first floor, and they see everything. The officers
there are very
environmental soil, which is surely a good idea, but why is this
only recognized and pointed to non-greek Captains, while greek captains
can leave their waste water, run their engine and aircondition noisy
all night without any reproach from Port Police?
