In this page Miscellaneous topics will be presented that don't "fit" in other pages. Please follow the links to the left of the page.
Air Lift: Demonstration of a rescue operation with an helicopter of the British Coast Guard during a visit in the Isle of Wight in May1999.
How to make a lifeline hung (beer) can holder. Self explanatory.
Defender: Some years ago I had the chance of sailing this Maxi Yacht that raced in the Whitbread race around the world. Read about it here and see some pictures.
Greek Glossary: Usually used sailing terms and phrases in English translated to Greek. I try to make this useful for printing and carrying aboard for friends around the world that plan to come cruising in Greek seas. The form is: English world - Greek pronounce in Latin letters - Greek word (so as to recognize it if you see it somewhere written). Please ask me for any add-ons you would like to see.
Note: The Greek Glossary pages display Greek characters. In order to be able to view please use the font "Arial Unicode MS" if your browser displays strange things. You probably need also to set your browser's encoding to Greek Windows characters.
Liferaft: During the preparations for the 2003 summer season I had the opportunity of watching the opening of the liferaft before it's annual service. You can see here the process but be warned that the page contains a lot of pictures and needs some time to download.
Humor: A humor page for Efaki created for and dedicated to a few colleagues.
