Our second 2-week flotilla came to an end under a European heat wave last Saturday. France, Germany and Italy have passed on their 42 degree temperatures to the central Aegean area. There was a light breeze as we came back into Athens which offered some reprieve but an air-conditioned restaurant was definitely where we headed as soon as soon as we docked! The weather has been so calm that there hasn’t been much sailing this week but our trip award will be go to David Smith for successfully skippering his huge Lagoon 450F flotilla boat through 400 miles and dozens of tiny Greek harbours – this requires Med Mooring stern to tie up. It’s not easy and David managed admirably! The other award will go to our new Poseidon Charters crew mate Lana, who arrived last minute to help us out when our hired summer crew had sudden family matters to attend to. Onwards and upwards, our next flotilla group is a 6 yacht flotilla starts on Saturday July 1st – Canada Day and Canada’s 150th birthday. We’ll celebrate by flying a huge Canadian flag from the mast!
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?
