Mistli Birthday BBQ Race 2020

The Odyssey 2020 - Leg 2
Welcome back to the second leg of Sailonline's Virtual Odyssey which takes us from Cape Maleas at the south eastern tip of the Peloponnese across the Mediterranean to the land of the drug-dependent Lotus Eaters, probably Djerba on the Tunisian coast, where Odysseus nearly tarries too long, but gets away in time, only to end up on the southern coast of Sicily near present-day Sciacca, where a one-eyed cyclops named Polyphemus holds terrible sway and has to be dealt with after he has devoured a number of the crew. 850nm of epic adventure; enjoy!
