Trip day to day
Set a course through the Cycladic archipelago on a 7-day voyage that epitomizes sailing in its purest form. The Aegean Odyssey is not merely a journey; it’s a narrative woven from the azure tapestry of the Greek seas, punctuated by the whispers of the Meltemi winds and tales of ancient mariners. Each island stop is a stanza in a poem of sails and salt, with the sun on your back and history in your wake.
From Lavrion’s ancient harbor, we embark on our maiden voyage to Kythnos, slicing through the waves for 25 nautical miles. With the wind as our companion, we reach the thermal springs and sandy coves of Kythnos in a mere 3 hours to 4 hours.
Our sails billow as we chart a 45 nautical mile course to Milos, an island sculpted by volcanic gods. Over 6 hours and 25 minutes, we’re on a quest through time, each wave bringing us closer to the isle of colors and the resting place of Venus.
Onward to Antiparos, we traverse 51 nautical miles of the Aegean’s heart over 7 hours and 17 minutes. The island’s caverns and crystalline shores are a siren call to seafarers, beckoning us to its understated charm and quiet revelry.
A brief but spirited sail of 12 nautical miles in 1 hour and 42 minutes takes us to Paros. Here, we moor for a luncheon where the flavors of the Aegean kiss our palates, preparing us for the afternoon’s voyage.
Our journey resumes post repast, a short 1 hour and 25 minute jaunt to Naxos, the Cycladic sentinel. Its 10 nautical mile span is a bridge between myth and modernity, inviting us to its fertile lands and ancient ruins.
The Homeric stretch to Santorini is our odyssey’s climax, a 60 nautical mile trek across Poseidon’s realm, taking 8 hours and 34 minutes. As our vessel cleaves the blue expanse, we anticipate the crescent isle’s dramatic caldera and sunset symphony.
In homage to the Greek seas, we’ve woven a reserve day into our 7-day odyssey, paying heed to the capricious Meltemi winds and mercurial tides. This day is the chorus to our Cycladic symphony, allowing us to navigate with the sea’s tempo—harmonizing our sails with the Meltemi’s breath, not challenging it. Our adaptability becomes our compass, guiding us safely through Aegean blues.
This pause in our journey offers a chance to savor more of the Hellenic wonders. Perhaps an extra dawn amidst the blue-domed serenity of Santorini, an unhurried afternoon tracing the sandy lacework of Paros’ shores, or an impromptu discovery in a secluded bay, this day gifts us the grace of Greek time.
With this reserve day, our tale of the Cyclades becomes a ballad of the sailor’s bond with the sea—charting through the Meltemi’s domain, uncovering isles less trodden, and above all, embracing the dance with nature’s formidable yet majestic elements.
