Cruising on the Vela Yacht and The Almond Village

On the Wednesday we drove over to Kyrenia harbour and as planned, boarded the Vela sailing yacht for a day at sea. 

Captain Serhat welcomed us on board an introduced us to his Mother, his brother and his 7 year old nephew, Karim.TheVela yacht had only two other guests , two young ladies from the Netherlands so it felt liked a private cruise.

At 10.00 am we set sail and made our way along the Northern Coastline of Cyprus with its dramatic mountains set in the background.

We then anchored up for a hour of Swimming and snorkelling. We then sat down to a superb meal that was prepared on the boat by the Captain's 75 year old Mother and a bbq cooked on the rear of the yacht.

After six hours onboard this beautiful yacht we moored up back in the harbour and bid our farewells to the family.

After a quick "wash and brush up" we headed over to the village of Lapta and enjoyed a lovely meal at the Almond village hotel.
