Throughout his career he has sailed extensively around Greece and its surrounding islands. Here he shares his experience of sailing from Athens down to the scenic Cyclades islands.
Athens – Mykonos
You will embark on O’Rama in Athens (near the port of Piraeus), and once you have met the crew and settled in to your quarters, the yacht will get underway. The first day will be a leisurely one, spent at sea as your yacht motors south-east to Mykonos. After six hours at sea you’ll reach the old port of Mykonos.
With the yacht moored up, you can disembark to explore the town and watch the sunset over the “Little Venice” quarter as you sip a cocktail in one of the many bars on the island (Galleraki is a firm favourite). Return to the boat for a traditional Greek dinner.
