After 10 weeks of sailing in Greece (and some motoring!), lots of historical sites, and even more Greek salads, Poseidon Charters now has a break from Greece (and Croatia) until September.  Back in Montreal with the glorious Canadian sunshine, we will be catching up with ‘the office’ and are available to talk to you about your travel plans for 2012. For now, we hope that you enjoy looking through the trips so far in pictures we have uploaded onto the Poseidon Charters facebook page. We’d love to see more pictures if you’ve travelled with us this summer especially if you were sailing with us in Croatia. We’ll be back with more updates from the Aegean in September and look forward to meeting all our guests sailing with us then: Steven Parry, Sharron Ranby and the team at Poseidon.

Sailing in Greece: A perfect sunset sail
Sailing in Greece: A perfect sunset sail

Crews from France, Northern Ireland, England, Canada and Switzerland were with us on this departure on 23 July. Joining a crew of 6 on Margarita (Steven you really have laid that anchor chain for the last time now!) was flotilla yacht Kalliopi skippered by ‘Royal Marine’ Steven and first mate ‘Doctor’ Phillip. Steven and Phillip’s family had big smiles and an Irish/English welcome full of enthusiasm for everyone each day. Their daily stories of playing cards with penalties for losing, was something we enjoyed hearing and witnessing upon arrival in each new harbour! Also following Margarita was flotilla yacht Ermioni skippered by the French contingent, Jerome and his lovely wife Laure – who made a mean rum punch for everyone on pirate night! The crew on Ermioni; Jerome and Laure’s 3 beautiful daughters aged between 8-12. The gusty meltemi winds arrived for our passage from Paros, so a change of itinerary took us on a safer but longer day to Kithnos. All crews did exceptionally well on the most challenging leg of the season and we couldn’t have been more proud of our youngest crew. The 3 young girls arrived in Kithnos after a full day on a small yacht, in heavier conditions still smiling and up for their daily net fish off the back off Ermioni – an inspiration to any sailor of any age! Leaving Kea slightly later than normal, the meltemi rewarded us for our previous hard work and we all delighted at a glorious sail for our return to Athens. As the sun set over Kalimaki marina for our last trip of the spring/summer season it couldn’t have been a more beautiful end to a fantastic trip with perfect weather and sailing shared with wonderful new friends.
