Sailing in Greece: A British family holiday!

On July 27 we welcomed a young family from the UK aboard. After a few days of relaxing sailing in the Saronic Gulf we left Hydra reasonably early and motor-sailed across 50 miles of beautiful blue sea to Merikas, Kithnos. On the way we hooked 2 tuna at the same time on two trolling lines – unfortunately one snapped the line but the second fish we landed! At Kithnos the whole family bathed in the natural hot springs at Kamares beach and later that day we went to Loutra on the east of the island and dined from tables in the sand at Sailor’s Taverna. Sailing to Kea island, we enjoyed a fantastic sail in 6 Beaufort winds across the Kithnos/Kea Channel and the next morning, enjoyed a wonderful morning hike to see the 21ft, 600BC Lion sculpture before returning to Athens. Thank you Quigley family for taking your first yachting holiday with us and special thanks to young Rory, the 8 year old boy, who got hooked on the whole mariner way of life. Rory you are officially our best client of the season so far always smiling, excited and eager to learn and do more aboard ship – we hope to see you back as one our skippers when you’re older!
