Photo Gallery 2008
This summer we decided
to vary our cruises between two different areas. The Aegean islands
in April, May and June, then a cruise from Athens, through the
Corinthian canal and back to the Ionian, and from the middle of
June until the end of the season around the Ionian islands. The
photos have been organized in the following categories:
the way... (185 photos)
With the stable summer winds in Greece, sailing is always a pleasure.
in a bay... (98 photos)
From the 10.000 islands of the Greek seas (9.200 uninhabited and
800 inhabited), you can imagine how much choice there is for stopping
in a deserted bay for swimming, snorkeling and lunch.

After a nice day at sea, we arrive at the
next island around 4 or 5 o'clock in the evening. You can wonder
around and explore the place, or sit in a local cafe, enjoy an
ice cream or a cold drink and watch the life around you.

As the architecture of the Aegean islands
is quite unique, we put them separately here.

Some nice photos of the activities and life
around the small harbours that we visit every evening.

Greece is famous for its ancient history
and the archaeological findings, so here are some ancient sites
that we visited this summer.
canal... (29 photos)
This year we crossed this spectacular canal
twice, once in April and the second time in June. It connects
the Saronic Gulf (which is a part of the Aegean sea) with the
Gulf of Corinth to the west, its length is 6300 meters, it is
24 meters wide and its sides have a height of 80 meters above
These are photos of some of the caves that
can be visited in our cruising area.
They love to play around our hull when we
are sailing, and no matter how many times we have seen them, we
always get very excited when they join us.
Underwater photos are so different and unique.
Check the one of the octapus!
Nighttime... (56 photos)
At the end of the day it's time for a few
drinks on the yacht and a visit to the local taverna for some
delicious Greek dishes.
Gales in Greece are quite rare during the
summer (especially in our cruising areas)
and when there is one forecast, we stay in port for an extra day
as they never last for more than 10-15 hours. 90% of our guests
are not experienced sailors so it would not be fun for them, but
also it is very unlikely to find mooring space at the next island,
as none of the yachts leave the harbours.
This summer we sailed in a storm on two occasions, once in the
Cyclades (Aegean sea) and once in the Gulf of Corinth. Despite
the forecast (normally you know about a storm 2 days in advance),
everybody onboard was very willing for the experience, so we set
