The fleets formed lines to face up to each other at some point. Hard to say where exactly.Probably they never really formed up to face before phase 3 was under way. However, the map shows approximation of the two fleets facing up to each other and shows they stretched over some way.

Thucydides comment that the Peleponnesians reached from Abydos to Dardanus actually fits, more or less.

Both sides hugged their own shore to have one secure flank as they approached. The Athenians had the most hazardous shore with rocks and shallow water.
