Logbook

Logbook

How can Greece be summed up in a one or two-week cruise? It would take years of cruising in these history-laden waters, before you could claim to have understood this multitude of cultures, islands and anchorages, which are as different as it is possible to be. From the Aegean Sea to the Ionian, sheltered in the Saronic Gulf, or in the windier part of the Dodecanese, there is inevitably a ‘magic’ place awaiting you. With 6000 islands of all sizes, only 270 of which are inhabited, the playground is…exceptional! The Aegean Sea harbours a natural beauty which on its own illustrates the whole of the Mediterranean. In the depths of the Saronic Gulf a string of islands unfolds, protected by the bay’s promontories. The steady winds and on-sight navigation make this a remarkable and unique place to sail. Exciting offshore sailing awaits you further south in the Cyclades, with their whitewashed, blue-windowed houses and their flower and scent-filled alleys. Wherever you go, you will find a unique perfume on each island, carefully matured like good ouzo. The Ionian Islands, which border the western coast of Greece, stand out from the majority of the Greek Islands by the fertility of their soil, due to the winter rains, and are covered with olive groves. This rain also makes the spring an unforgettable moment, when the air is filled with the aroma of wild flowers. But the sun is compulsory for the rest of the year, and some of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean can be found where these lush, fertile shores disappear into the shimmering waters of the Ionian Sea. The Dodecanese is a sailing paradise, with more than 160 small islands within sight of each other, and strong winds. Each island is a world of beaches, creeks and bays. It is not difficult to be alone, as only 26 of them are inhabited. In the interior, each village breathes a friendly atmosphere, and houses a charming mixture of oriental and western style architecture. Each of these islands has a rich historic past and seems to welcome you with its antique ruins, its castle dating from the crusades and also its seafront, with delightful restaurants and an abundance of fish.

The official currency is the euro. The language is Greek, but almost everyone speaks at least English. Not to be missed: Every island has its treasures. But don’t miss finding ‘your taverna’, the one where you feel so comfortable, you will always try to return…
