A jolly little flotilla in Greece

Led by Christiana VIII, our second flotilla departure welcomed Naias, Smaragda, Kos 39, Astria and Spicy referred to as ‘Spicy Boys’ with the all male crew from Northampton, UK. For the first time in our 23 years of sailing in Greece, we were surprised to get dense fog for our armada of little flotilla yachts heading from Athens to Aegina – we now know what the horn sounded like aboard the yachts! The fog cleared just in time for lunch to reveal a beautiful blue-sky day for the first swim stop of the trip in the crystal clear turquoise waters of Aghia marina bay. After great stops at Poros, Hydra and Milos the flotilla separated for a day and the smaller yachts enjoyed a solo sail to Folegandros for the night while Christiana VIII, Astria and the Spicy Boys headed to Ios. The first week ended on a high with a great night out to watch the World Cup in the bars of the hilltop Chora, Ios is famous for.
