Sailing in Greece: a perfect end to the first flotilla week of 2013

How quickly the winter had passed and on our first week of the flotilla season we’ve enjoyed some lovely sailing with new friends from Toronto aboard our beautiful  Jeanneau 49 Ealis and a smaller group aboard Naias our 37 foot Jeanneau. The Greek islands are just as colourful and beautiful as ever and after time in Hydra, we arrived at Mandraki Milos where we were invited into Stelios’ fishing garage to learn about nets, lines and tiny Greek fishing boats, before swimming off the cliffs and caves of Sarakiniko. Our activities were rewarded by an exquisite meal of seafood, salads and pasta at Yialos taverna in Pollonia. After two days exploring Milos, we then set sail for Ios where we were welcomed by Liostasi’s boutique hotel and treated to a stunning view of the sunset while sipping cocktails and taking a dip in the pool. Ending the first week with yet another phenomenal Greek meal served by Greek service industry professionals, it’s great to see that Greece is open for tourism like never before!
