Our second departure of the year left the Saronic Gulf after a few lovely days and headed on a great downwind crossing to Milos in 6 Beaufort northerly winds. Margarita hit 11.6 knots with her new mainsail and the new crew landed a 15lb yellowfin tuna! The wind kept us for two days at Milos harbour, so we toured the whole island by minivan and were guided to a natural ‘Pirates jacuzzi’ as well as many other geological wonders! On our second night in Milos we dined like kings on seared fresh tuna in olive oil, soya sauce, honey and garlic – fantastic!
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?
