Ahoy from Greece, Poseidon Charters is aboard the goodship Margarita and ready to start the 2012 sailing season. Greece has been very much on our minds and in the news in recent months and now we’re here we’re very happy to see that Athens Alimos marina is still the same and the yachts are proudly in the water waiting for you to arrive. We’ve been to the ATM’s and can confirm that Euro funds are available to withdraw, Athens was quiet and the Greek locals are as wonderful as they have always been. Our first departure leaves Athens on 2 June and we’re looking forward to greeting our crews tomorrow from Staffordshire in the UK, Montreal, Canada and New York, Connecticut and Colorado in the States.
There are so many words to describe the wonders of a trip to Croatia and it's definitely more than a sailing holiday...it's a destination full of life.
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?
