As we approach Sagiada we can see another Sailing Holiday’s flotilla is coming in so we sail up to one of the fleet and hail them to find out the name of their lead boat and it’s operating VHF channel.
This means that we can call up Dessa and and let them fit us into their parking pattern rather than pushing our way in.
We can also warn them that we are still experiencing intermittent engine problems at low revs and may have trouble going from ahead to astern and visa versa,
“Thanks for the warning, we already have two engineers out in the ribs so they will assist if required”
This was a good job as the wind and engine made mooring up stern to a bit of a problem.
Once we were in it was a chance for me to introduce the crew to the reason I had brought them to Sagiada, the local massive prawns as served up by Alex in his taverna.
All you have to do is decide how many KILOS you want, as he sells them by the dead weight including shells. If you wonder what a kilo of Sagaida prawns looks like, take a look at the photo, we had two kilos between the four of us.
