Sailing in Greece the return to Athens

From our halfway point at Ios we skipped through the waves past Homer’s point to the little islet of Skinoussa. Here we indulged ourselves at Sweet Deli taverna, on Kalamari stuffed with sundries tomatoes and feta cheese along with a delicious local goat with fettuccine. Heading North after Skinoussa,  we arrived for a swip stop at Tigania and a fantastic lunch prepared by the crew. Everyone swam and loved the azure waters of this little cove just around the corner from Paros island. A group decision to skip Mykonos was made so next we sailed to the very beautiful and less visited island of Syros where everyone hiked up to see both the Catholic and Orthodox cathedrals on their respective hills! We’re always on the look out for new restaurants to add to our repotoire and in Syros wondering the streets the crew found a new restaurant named Mazi. The beautiful lush vegitated dining courtyard is surrounded by 19th century arches meeting 40ft in the air! Said to be an old ceramics factory, but more likely to have also been a church at some point, Mazi was put down as one to try on future trips! Sailable winds took us all the way back to Athens via stops at Paros and Kea. A perfect cruise was the consensus arriving back in Athens on Friday evening.
