Sometimes, it seems that people are meant to meet, and on this trip that was very true with couples from Australia, and Canada forming new friendships for life. Also onboard Margarita we welcomed Matt, a videographer from Toronto invited to film a new promotional video for Poseidon. In addition to Margarita on flotilla was Ealis with a group of friends from Oregon and also Anerada with a lovely repeat flotilla sailor family from Brazil onboard. The trip started great and after a fun pirate night in Hydra we headed down to Milos for our first ever wedding at Kleftico bay. The crew of Ealis decorated the bow of the yacht with stunning bougainvillea and after official ‘I do’s’ were out of the way, the bride and groom jumped into the turquoise waters for what was to be a day they will never forget. Congratulations again Nina and James and thank you for allowing us to be part of your special day and great BBQ wedding feast on the rocks! Heading to Ios, we swam at Blue Lagoon Bay, the conditions this trip were perfect to stop and dive into the crystal clear waters – so clear you could see your own reflection below. Just as we thought the day couldn’t get any better, as we left the bay, dolphins joined us on the bow, a truly incredible experience for everyone. After the return leg including Paros, Delos, Mykonos and Kea we returned back to Athens with what was now a group of close friends onboard – thank you crew of Margarita for making this such a fun and memorable trip!
There are so many words to describe the wonders of a trip to Croatia and it's definitely more than a sailing holiday...it's a destination full of life.
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?
