It’s been a mixed weather week for our first departure of the year with Christiana VIII, Margarita and Alexandros on flotilla. We’ve seen a rare bit of rain mixed with sand from North Africa causing very dirty decks in Hydra and also wonderful broad reach conditions on the way to Milos. Christiana VIII on her maiden voyage with Poseidon hit 11.3 knots on the passage to Milos with Margarita coming in a close second. We couldn’t be more pleased with Christiana VIII – after a few hot water teething issues she is proving to be a beautiful proud leader of our flotilla. Yesterday we said a sad goodbye to the crew aboard Margarita – safe trip back to Canada everyone.
