I looked at Turkey a short mile or two across the Straight of Samos from our yacht anchored in the bay of Pathagoris on the Greek Island of Samos. Green, lush, mountainous and mysterious, she called to me.

I was in a meeting the other day and talking to some potential agents about Custom Sailing in the Greek Islands. “Tell us about sailing in Greece” she said, “what’s it like?” I thought back to my first visit to the place that has touched my soul and become my second home.

Our guests arrive. Rejoining us are some sailors who sailed in Greece this past September. I told them tales of the famed Christmas winds in the Grenadines and of the Mustique Blues Fest, we are looking forward to a fun week of great wind, music and sailing!
