Sailing in Greece: The Meltemi winds arrive

Heading into July the winds became more challenging and we’re glad that with three sails and a 12ton keel, our flagship Margarita sailed us safely through the larger seas and heavier wind conditions that the Aegean is famous for at this time of year. On the second week, we sailed with the wind and headed to Ermoupoli, Syros, the capital of the Aegean Sea, where we enjoyed the grand architecture and tranquility of the safe harbour of Syros. Heading to Kea we had the best sail of the season and managed a consistent 8-9 knots on a long tack in lighter air, under the full sail of 220sq/ – great suntanning weather!  After two weeks at sea, the trip ended on a high for our British, Australian, US and Canadian guests with lots of smiling faces and many sailing miles with a very small carbon footprint!
