Sailing in Greece week 5

Sailing in Greece week 5

The start of the 3rd two-week flotilla trip continued with the heatwave on Day 1, meaning the new crew got the chance to enjoy 'surface star fish', 'shark bait', Tarzan swing and synchonized jump'! In stark contrast to the first day, the wind then arrived.  On the more challenging Cycladic flotilla route we sail, you can always expect the Greek God Poseidon to arrive at some point, but this week he came with a strong blast that has lasted 30-40 knots for 4 days. This of course changed our itinerary, and in two cases meant that the smaller yachts decided not to continue into the Cyclades with us. We were sad to see the Jeanneau 37 with crew from Qatar and the Oceanis 38 with two crew from the UK leave the flotilla and remain in the Saronic Gulf. Their decision was based on knowing their own sailing capabilities, the number of crew they had onboard and we fully respected that was the safe decision to make. The lead 60ft flotilla yacht, Christianna with 8 guests from Quebec, Canada and one from California, USA, breezed through the wind. Christianna stretched her wings has she flew, followed closely by the Jeanneau 50 with the crew from Toronto. We are currently in Sifnos, running a day behind and waiting fto make a dash across to Ios in time for the next cabin charter crews to arrive.
