Our sailing itinerary since June 12 has been driven by Germany’s draw at the World Cup. We didn’t miss a game, making our way to town quays, walking and driving in by dinghy from our anchorage. The excitement, and our anxiety, has been building to culminate in yesterday’s nailbiter of a Final.
All the bars in Sivota were jammed with fans, overwhelmingly cheering for Argentina – the Greeks, I guess, due to Merkel’s austerity program and the British and Dutch because they will never cheer for Germany.
When Goetze scored deep in extra time we jumped for joy hugging our new Serbian and Maltese friends we met here who joined us for the game.
Afterwards, Andrea from Belgrade, cracked open a bottle of champagne to toast the new Weltmeister!
