Fava fun!

New guests boarded Margarita and Christiana VIII in Ios and on Monday when the Aussie flotilla crews arrived back from Santorini we headed for a magical night at Skinoussa. The highlight was not only the delicious food at Deli restaurant where Dimitri treated us to local meats, cheeses and salads but there was also the yearly Fava festival! Skinoussa has a population of only 200 people and the whole island joined in for this yearly celebration. With fresh fava by the pot, wine, music and dancing under the stars – a fun night was had by all! Leaving Skinoussa we stopped at Paros for the night before heading through the Delos channel. The lunch stop at Delos was the best of the trip with Margarita and Christiana VIII rafted together for everyone to enjoy jumping and swinging off the bow of Christiana VIII into the crystal clear waters.  A short hop over to Mykonos followed where the crews partied into the early hours at Skandi bar. A tired but happy flotilla arrived back in Athens on Friday evening and we bid a sad farewell to our fun group before Poseidon’s crew headed over to start the Croatian flotilla program.
