Coming from Brindisi, we tied up between the ferry and an old tug on the rough dock with much rusty rebar sticking out. In fact we had to tie our lines to the rusty rebar.
An Agent by the name of Arthan took our ship's papers and passports and went off to clear us in. This cost to us about €50 to clear in. He brought back our papers, but nothing official to show that we had checked in, which was a bit of a worry.
We then left the dock and headed south to the Orikum marina.
When we left a few days later we had to come back to this dock, and it took abot half an hour to check out, but did not cost any more money. We doid get some sort of a form returned to us at check out.
They could not tell us if we would need to pay €50 again in other ports down the coast, but they did say we could anchor in Porto Palermo.
We considered stopping in Sarende, but carried on the Greece instead.Howard [ Just Imagine ] 06-Jun-2010
