From Monemvasia to Kithera

Kithera

Monemvasia, for the Venetians "Malvasia" is a pearl of the Peloponnese, unfortunately we can not visit the fortress at the top because of the restoration in progress, right there is the old building of the administrator from Mar Serenissima, is it good motivation to return here. We take the sea in the direction of 140 ° with a destination 43 miles Kithera (Cytera) for the Venetians Cerigo, is an island located south of the tip of the Peloponnese, the last bastion Venetian watershed between two seas, the Ionian, the Aegean and Candia (Crete), from whose waters are said to have been born Aphrodite, goddess of beauty and love. The crosswind from the west at 11 knots, pushing Arina at 7 knots to Cape Maleas, considered the head of the Mediterranean Horn, a beacon clinging to the rocks indicates the extreme point south in the third finger of the Peloponnese, nestled between rocks and a clump of green you can see a white convent overlooking the sea; in the background you can see Kithera south, in the haze of scorching heat, some merchant ships at sea crossing our route to the Straits of Suez. We continue with course 198 ° for 15 miles along the east side of Kithera, at the height of Diakofti the remains of a cargo ship that seems to get back on top of the rock on which it was stranded; the wind from the N-Owest is felt just passed Ak Kapello south of Kithera, gusts and rough seas we undertake in the last 5 miles that separate us from the harbor of Kythira, at 15.30 we throw the anchor and we are in another beautiful sheltered bay, perched above us to dominate the horizon from a height of 200 meters, is located in the Venetian fortress founded in 1316.
