Entering the Amvrakikos Gulf aka Gulf of Arta (an inlet from the Ionian Sea, about 25 nm long and 10 nm wide) through the Stenon Prevezis, here only three cables wide, the scene not only of the great Naval Battle of Actium which in 31 BCE decided the future of the Roman world, but also of the Naval Battle of Preveza, where the Ottoman forces under Barbarossa Hayreddin Pasha defeated the Holy League of Charles V under the command of Andrea Doria in 1538 CE.

Walking through the narrow back streets of Preveza and admiring the architecture of the traditional Preveza homes and the splendid clock tower housed by the Metropolitan Church of Saint Haralambos.

Bumping into our South-African yottie friends Anita, Thomas, Karla and Dane from SY "Cestrian" and having together a rowdy fish-and-wine dinner in one of the tavernas near the harbour.
