It was a bittersweet moment as we reluctantly left the magical islands of the Cyclades making our way back to our home port in Athens.  Enroute we stopped off for a  refreshing swim at Cape Sounion with the Temple of Poseidon as our backdrop.  Enchanting indeed!Image attachmentImage attachment+2Image attachment

Just when we thought it couldnt get any better. Our day started off with a gorgeous sail from Syros to Kolona on Kythnos Island. Here you have 2 bays totally separated by a sandbar. Once here, you have so many places to explore. You can check out the hot spring on the beach, swim and explore the caves, go for a walk along the sandbar to take in the breathtaking views or take a hike up to the top of the escarpment to take in the amazing sight of the surrounding bays and open water. At night we were greeted with spectacular fireworks on the beach, a couple hundred feet from our boats. A few of our flotilla participants even had the good fortune of sitting in the hotspring, chatting with Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson.Image attachmentImage attachment+7Image attachment

Yes, great place, nice mooring

Wow. Don’t know Kythnos Looks beautiful!

And we may have seen some famous stars but you’ll have to get that story in person 😜

With big breeze on its way, we decided to leave early the next morning to secure a spot at Finikas Marina on Syros for our fleet of 6 boats. What a great decision, as there was so much to see and do for the next 3 days while our boats stayed protected from 35+ knots. Many people decided to rent scooters to explore the many beautiful sites, towns and beaches on the island including the capital of the Cyclades - Ermoupoli.Image attachmentImage attachment+Image attachment

Wow ..great pictures!!!!

Fab photos & amazing water views!😍

After meandering our way through some picturesque islands, we came upon the island of Despotiko, another beautiful gem. Our protected anchorage was nestled between Antiparos and Despotiko. A short dinghy ride took us to an active archeological site where the highlight was the Doric Archaic temple of Apollo.Image attachmentImage attachment+3Image attachment
Leaving the beautiful port of Milos in Greece.  Our anchoring specialists on bow and skipper of the day on the helm and line handlers on the two stern lines -  Quote of the day from the stern, as we leave our Med-moor … ‘Don’t keep it a secret when the anchor is up’,  LOL.  Crew communication is the key wether you are racing a dingy, a keelboat or just cruising!    #livelovesail #flotillasailing #sailingcyclades #advantageboatingImage attachmentImage attachment+1Image attachment
