It’s been a mixed weather week for our first departure of the year with Christiana VIII, Margarita and Alexandros on flotilla. We’ve seen a rare bit of rain mixed with sand from North Africa causing very dirty decks in Hydra and also wonderful broad reach conditions on the way to Milos. Christiana VIII on her maiden voyage with Poseidon hit 11.3 knots on the passage to Milos with Margarita coming in a close second. We couldn’t be more pleased with Christiana VIII – after a few hot water teething issues she is proving to be a beautiful proud leader of our flotilla. Yesterday we said a sad goodbye to the crew aboard Margarita – safe trip back to Canada everyone.
The face of travel has changed for us all, and while travel restrictions are now on the increase again, in July and August we did see a slight return to travel for a while.
We so happy Greece is back open for business and if you are able to travel to Greece right now, there are some brilliant last minute bargains on offer.
