Sailing in Greece: The last sail of 2012

For the first time this year, the rain joined us as we left Athens for the final flotilla of the year. Naias and Kalliopi joined Margarita for this all-Canadian departure and in true Greek weather style, the rain only stayed with us for one day until the beautiful September sun came back. In Hydra, Tony from Kalliopi and Brian from Margarita thrilled us all with their excellent musical talents playing the restaurant’s guitar. Tony we thoroughly enjoyed the Beatles medley, thank you for providing such ‘on the spot’ entertainment. Leaving Hydra, the meltemi winds were kind to us and allowed us to have an overnight anchorage on the south western tip of Milos and a fantastic BBQ of lamb, chicken and pork under the stars. Ios and Paros followed where we said goodbye to the crew of Kalliopi at wonderful Apollon restaurant. Heading back to Athens, Friday turned out to be the best sailing day of the flotilla and Naias and Margarita enjoyed hour after hour of wonderful winds taking us into Alimos marina for a spectacular sunset arrival to end the 2012 Mediterranean season.
