Crew 4’s feedback
10 December 2016
Nemyra, Lansing and Francis
Nemyra and Lansing were our fourth crew in 2016. They were on board for 11 nights (11/09-22/09) and we sailed about 80 NM (150 km) in that time. They joined us in Kerkyra (Korfu) and we visited Mandraki marina in the centre of Korfu city, the Blue Lagoon on Sivota Island and Sivota , Lakka and Gaios on Paxos, Votoumi Bay on Antipaxos, Ioanni Bay and Preveza from where they continued their journey around Greece.
This is how they are looking back at their trip on Clio:
Our 11 nights and 12 days sailing on Clio in the Ionian Sea with Chris and Francis went by far too quickly. What a smorgasbord of experiences: dining in delightful harbor-side cafes sampling the local cuisine; exploring historical sites on Corfu; visiting local places of interest both there and on the other islands too. There was also swimming and snorkeling in crystal clear waters, and often being delighted by our hosts when introduced to their marine creatures and their latest sea "finds".
There was interesting activity to be had on shore - wandering narrow streets with quaint shopfronts (sometimes getting a little lost whilst exploring, but this only added to the experience). Some days were enjoyably lazy, spent stretched out on deck lulled by Clio's gentle rocking - an opportunity to catch up on some reading, or just enjoy the local scenery and do some people-watching. Most days concluded with "Happy Hour", an opportunity to relax, engage in amiable discussion, and perhaps try a local beer or wine whilst savouring tasty snacks - making sure to leave enough room for Chris's superb cuisine.
Sounds like a great holiday? It was indeed a memorable and unique experience. Thanks, Francis and Chris. You are wonderful hosts, and your hospitality added so much to our Greek Island adventure - making it truly a Vacation of a Lifetime.
