Our third departure of the year began with a group of friends from the United States and beautiful smooth sailing in no more than 5 Beaufort. This meant for the first time this year, we had the treat of the stunning overnight anchorage at Kleftiko with a BBQ under the starry Greek skies. In Ios, after saying goodbye to our new American friends, we welcomed aboard a new crew of South African honeymooners and a Canadian family of 4; the wind also changed and altered the itinerary which meant we could visit Serifos and Iraklia. As this trip comes to a close, once again Greece has given us golden tans and we’ve enjoyed lots of sunny hikes, dolphin races and amazing food every night!
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?
