Finally, the 2017 season is underway, as we left Athens yesterday on a windless passage to Poros. Our first day included a lunch stop for a hike to the temple of Aphaia in Aegina. Later in the day we arrived for an overnight in the Poros channel where we enjoyed a delicious dinner of fresh fish and lamb kleftiko at Garden Taverna. Looking stunning as always, Christianna VIII has welcomed aboard cabin charter guests from Canada and the States. Following on flotilla with us are two monohulls and a 44ft catamaran, again with guests from the States and Canada. As the sun sets behind the hills, we’re now camped out in Hydra for the night after a few guests took a hike up to the spectacular monastery. Our Floridian crew aboard the catamaran Georgina, are proving they can take good care of themselves after docking the yacht perfectly in Hydra…not the easiest port on our itinerary!
Summer may be over in the Med for 2022, but in the Virgin Islands it's summer all year round especially at the US Virgin Islands Yacht Show!
You've decided you want your sailing vacation to be relaxing with crew but how do you know if a skippered charter is enough, or if a luxury fully crewed yacht is the experience you dream of?
