Sailing cruise Greece a windy week

Setting sail on our first full two-week Cycladic adventure this season we saw guests from Georgia, Colorado and Ontario aboard our beautiful Ocean Star vessels Christiana VIII and Possidon. Everyone really enjoyed visiting Hydra and the energetic crews onboard hiked the 3-hour round trip up to the monastery. Leaving Hydra, the first true Meltemi of the season arrived, with three solid days of beautiful sailing that all crews were up for! Arriving at Kamares sand bar on the island of Kythnos, we enjoyed a wonderful barbecue meal cooked ashore by Captain Stefanos. The next passage to Sifnos was the highlight of the week as Christiana VIII sailed on a perfect wing on wing and both yachts were neck and neck after a bit of a race – Christiana VIII just beating Possidon on the home straight! Arriving at Platy Yalos, Sifnos, crews took a break from Greek gastronomy for a night and loved pizza at Mama Mia Italian restaurant on the beach!  The last sail of the week was another windy day. A great broad reach took us to Ios island and the first visit of 2015 to Liostasi Boutique hotel for massages, pedicures and poolside cocktails. We sadly said goodbye to four guests from Ontario, but eight others returned from a two-day excursion to Santorini for the second half of the Aegean adventure!
