Santorini to Mykonos sailing trip in Aug

Postby dorie75 » Sat Jun 14, 2014 7:30 am

New to this company but really thinking about booking on the above trip in late August. Has anyone been on it before and can you tell me what type of age group these trips cater for? I am a 37 year old female but have a real sense of adventure and would love to see the beautiful islands of Greece by yacht. Any experiences of the trip would be very helpful.

Thanks

It's a great trip. The age ranges vary. I was 43 when I did it but we had 4 others in their mid-30s and a couple that were late-30s on that leg.

Just enjoy yourself, it's great.

I'm debating signing up for the Aug 30 - Sept 7 trip. Also in my 30's.

Can someone provide information on the condition of the boats? Safety?

Thanks!!!

The boats are 50-ft (17 m) yachts. Well equipped but hardly Emile Largo's pleasure palace. You'll have access to A/C if/when the boat is docked and tied into the pier power system. The boats have a small kitchen area and common lounge but most people will hang out on deck.

I found the cabins to be somewhat underventilated for my tastes in July so slept out on deck. The skipper was a little nervous about that until she was satisfied I wasn't going to roll off into the water but everyone else appreciated a little more isolation from my snoring ... :lol:

The boats are as safe as the passengers -- in other words, they have all the necessary safety equipment and the skippers are protective of their passengers but they can only do so much if you choose to do something stupid ...
