Clio's Adventures

Crew 5’s feedback

13 January 2017
Margaret, Neil and Francis
Margaret, Laurel and Neil were our fifth crew in 2016. They were on board for 14 nights (25/09-10/10) and we sailed about 120 NM (200 km) in that time. They joined us in Preveza and we visited Vonitsa, Lefkas town on Lefkas Island, Sparti, Nidri, Scorpios, Vati on Meganisi, Atokos, Filiatro Bay and Vathy on Ithaka, Fiskardo on Kefalonia, Sivota on Lefkas, and back to Preveza via Lefkas marina.

This is Margaret's impression, looking back on her trip on Clio:
Such good memories of my time on Clio: freshly squeezed hot lemon juice each morning, prepared by our host Francis, who was our sailing Captain &daily coordinator. Our days drifted by soaked in sunshine, cool breezes &amazing island adventures. Christine, the other half of team Clio, cooked up a storm of delicious dishes while her skills with a sail & docking were admirable. I thoroughly recommend this duo to anyone looking to sail the Greek islands.

This is Neil's comments on his time on board Clio:
Not being a sailor and prone to seasickness, I was a little concerned when advised that we had booked to go sailing around Greece on a small yacht. However within the first few days my concerns were put to rest. Our Captain (Francis) with his First Mate (Chris) displayed total professionalism when sailing Clio (The yacht) around this incredibly beautiful area of the world.
From small villages that rely on the yachts to survive, to larger towns that have some special areas to explore. Imagine standing in the bathhouse of Cleopatra located in the ruins of the Necropolis in Preveza.
Want to have a magical ride then I recommend you join with Francis and Chris aboard Cleo for a very special journey.
