Reviews for Greek Islands sailing vacation, Santorini to Mykonos


review 29 May 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Weather conditions were ideal for most days of our week of sailing, from fair to rough, but always safe and secure in the hands of our master mariner, Antonio

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Be prepared for slight changes in your sailing itinerary - the wind blows where it wants to. You'll pack too many clothes - think sun - casual - a woolly for the wind. With time on your hands on board think of what you might do - read, write, converse. You're part of a crew/team not just an individual - our age range was 21 - 89. Sailing is a great leveller - there's one boss on board - the Skipper

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

On shore try to use local amenities for food and drink. Make eye contact and keep smiling. I had the advantage of wearing the kilt which drew attention and invited comment of a cross cultural nature. Our skipper encouraged recycling, and water conservation is more and more important, yet you must drink plenty of it. There is a stark contrast between the 'green' of the UK and the apparent barrenness of the islands, yet these islands have sustained ancient civilisations for centuries producing hardy survivors - not to be patronised.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

One of the best vacations of a very long lifetime. Life on board and life ashore can be very precious if you're prepared for both. Enjoy the swimming!
