A difficult 2 days for both ferries. Myrtidiotisa trying to get into Skopelos port coming from Skiathos and Agios Konstantinos and Express Skiathos coming from Volos and Skiathos and going to Alonissos.
Passengers who did not get to Skiathos yesterday slept in a cabin on the Myrtidiotisa and reached Skiathos mid afternoon for their flights.
