Prior to the summer of 2006, I had crewed on various yachts (for day
trips only) on occasion, off the coast of ME, MA, and FL.
What really got me turned on to sailing and the thought of becoming a
skipper was being crew on a 15-day island hopping sail on a 38-foot
yacht among the Cyclades in Greece. That was the summer of 2005. An
absolute dream vacation! Beginning in Alimos on the coast south of
Athens (this is a major marina for charter companies and yachts
heading off to the Cyclades). Wind direction and the group's
interests got us to: Kea, Syros, Mykonos (including rest day), back
to Syros, Paros, Serifos, Kythnos, back to Kea, and back to the
mainland. Docking in busy harbors to anchoring in quiet remote bays.
So off we go, and in the summer of 2006 I sailed many, many days with
BSC, having completed several of their courses.
I do not own a boat, but thru BSC want to become more familiar with
the cruising grounds in and around coastal MA, and I am already
making plans to go back to Greece in 2008.
