Each year at the end of August we sail a 1-week hop into the Cyclades with just our cabin charter yacht. This year Margarita headed out of Athens with an all American contingent of non-sailors. The week proved to be the hottest week of the summer with temperatures souring into the 40’s and that is Celsius! Margaritas 60ft deck sure came in handy for cooler sleeping spots – a highlight when under the stars at Kithnos! Leaving Cape Sounion on Friday lunch, it was the best sail of the year so far with all the sails up right back into Alimos marina. It was the perfect end to a fun week giving everyone the chance to take the helm and see what sailing is all about. One-week trips are always over so quickly but we had a great time – Paige, Ralph, Sherrie, Paul, Laurie and Fred, thanks for sailing with us.
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?
