Brief description of the holiday
We begin the return journey home, in Naples. This is the first of three weeks of sailing "at destination", perfect for the longer cruise lovers, night navigation passionates and for the fans of this sport. International crew on board! Like modern Argonauts we will leave Skiathos, in the Northern Sporades, and arrive at the Saronic Gulf (the Gulf of Athens). We will descend Euboea (Evia for the Greeks) and discover places unknown to the international tourism but very dear to the locals who know the beauty. In the Saronic Gulf we will touch one or more of the beautiful islands of Aegina, Salamis, Poros. The number of stops will depend on the weather and sea conditions, but we will always have chance to stretch our legs, visit a new place and make a nice dip. For those getting off after the first week, the desembarkment will take place in one of the islands (most likely Aegina) and NOT in Athens.
Beneteau Oceanis Clipper 411
This boat was born in France in 2003. It is a faithful and very reliable boat. It holds the sea well, it is solid, docile. Very equipped from a technical point of view. The flying stay (and the staysail) added at a later time help it to slide fair and balanced on the wave even with tense winds. The electric winch is a boon. It will be a little seafarer, but the advantage is undoubted! Inside it's a house. Comfortable and welcoming. We use it often and there is everything. From the juicer to a guest library. My boat is female. Technical features Draft 1.95 mt Motorization: Volvo Penta 50 hp Fuel tanks: 140 lt. Water tanks: 550 lt.
