This trip started with great excitement in more ways than one! We were already excited about having two birthdays aboard King and a wedding onboard SpongeBob, but what we didn’t anticipate was the weather excitement! Within an hour of leaving Split, the Gods treated us to roaring thunder and a spectacular light show for the short hop to Trogir – the only downside was the rain that came down in bucket loads! Arriving in Skradin that night, the rain subsided a little and we enjoyed our first birthday celebration for Geoff from the UK – mojitos all round was the drink for the day. A few days later in Dubrovnik ACI Marina, it was an unforgettable experience when the crew aboard SpongeBob, a Lagoon 450 invited us to their wedding. It was a very moving affair aboard the flower decorated deck when bride Andree and groom Pierre from Montreal said their vows with family and friends onboard and the rest of the family watching on Skype and facetime back home. The evening ended in a chandelier lit restaurant in the heart of Dubrovnik’s walled city – a truly memorable day for everyone. With the wedding celebrations over, we then enjoyed a chilled birthday for our ‘repeat offender’ client Karen from Ottawa, Karen’s day started with a relaxing massage at the marina, lunch by the pool and then a few drinks and a little birthday cake in Sipan! Ending just outside Split, the yachts had one final gathering for a 2-hour fuel stop line-up with 50 other yachts! This trip really was special with lots of celebrations. Thank you Pierre and Andree for allowing Poseidon Charters to be part of your very special day – we look forward to welcoming you to Greece for your anniversary next year!
If you've already been to Greece, the chances are you've seen and quite likely bought a Cycladic statue as a souvenir, but do you know the history behind them?
