Sailing in Greece 2017 week 3

Week 3 already and a big Greek welcome to our new crew aboard the lead flotilla yacht our 60ft stunner, Christianna. This departure we welcome a family from Virginia including two young sailors aged 8 & 12 (we like to start them young!) and two other North American couples.  The flotilla has an international vibe and our flotilla crews hail from South Africa, Manchester, UK and a group of Canadians aboard a brand new Lagoon 450 called SAO.

Leaving Athens on Sunday morning, the weather was unusually wet for Greece with rain off and on all day. It didn’t dampen spirits though as the squalls made for some good sailing and excited sailing banter last night at the Garden taverna on our first island, Poros. The thing we enjoy most on our flotillas is the diverse groups of people we get sailing with us. As the itinerary is a bit more challenging, we have the more adventurous folks wanting to do the unique Cycladic flotilla and adventure always brings stories! At dinner it’s wonderful to see people sit and eat with new friends and exchange stories and experiences from their part of the world – be it sailing related or not! Tonight, we are off to one of our favorite restaurants in Hydra…saganaki cheese is a must or is stuffed bell peppers, or could it be the dolmades…it’s a tough choice so may have to have them all!
