Day 21 – To Milos and back

It was always our aim to get to Santorini, or to give it’s is Greek name Thira, which is why we called the blog to Thira and back.   We...

Day 20 – Vourkari, Kea

Our last stop before heading back to base at Lavrion.  It was also our first stop almost 3 weeks ago and where we had problems finding a...

Day 19 – Kolona, Kithnos

Our second time at the sand bar bay, our favourite anchorage on Kithnos and maybe in the whole of the Cyclades.   It is stunning.   The...

Day 18 – Loutra, Kithnos

Tuesday turned out not to be as windy as forecast, maybe 15 knots, gusting between 21-22 knots, so we decided going to Loutra would be...

Day 17 – Finikas, Syros

Day 17 is back to Finikas, firstly because it’s the best stop off point back to Kythnos, but also because it’s a very safe place in a...

Day 16 – Tinos

We wanted to go to Tinos town primarily for the famous church, the church of Panagia Evangelistic which is the most important Orthodox...

Day 15 – Finikas, Syros

Today was our longest journey so far, in total about 32 nautical miles about 2/3 of which was windless.   There were a couple of usual...

Day 13 and 14 – Naxos

As I write this we’re on our way to Siros, and it’s good to be back on the water after two days in Naxos.   We were both looking forward...

Day 11 – Vathi, Sifnos

Wow that was a feisty sail!  Close hauled all the way (very tippy),  between 20 and 30 knots of wind, full sail to start, then reefs...

Day 8, 9 and 10 – Adhamas, Milos

There’s a lot of stuff to see on Milos, so we always planned on staying 2 nights,  we also knew in 3 weeks we would probably get storm...

Day 6 & 7, Kamares, Sifnos

We decided to spend two days on Sifnos, it’s just too lovely to cut and run after a day,  loads to see and although the island has a well...

Day 5 – Livadhion, Serifos

The sail to Serifos from Kithnos was uneventful and not very exciting sailing wise.  We motored down the west coast of Kithnos, then as...

Day 4 – Kolona, Kithnos

This has to be one of the most beautiful anchorages in the world.   We arrived at 3, anchored without issue, had a late lunch of...

Day 2 – Vourkari

Today was definitely a lesson in how quickly things can go wrong when sailing, regardless of how much skill and experience you have.   It...

Day 1 Lavrion

Lavrion, it turns out,  is quite a nice place.  You wouldn’t want to stay here for a week (not much to do), but it’s a great place to...

Lavrio here we come!

Yassas! I’m writing this first blog entry on the plane to Athens, the first part of our journey to Lavrion where our yacht Danae eagerly...
