19 August 2017 | Le Vieux Chateau - once occupied by British pirate Robert Knolles who seized it in 1355. Demolished by King Louis XIV at the end of 17th century as he didnt want it taken by an enemy and used as a strong point
We have been sailing together for 18 years and have owned Stiletto for 16 of them. We have exhausted the Solent and the UK South Coast and all the other usual passages: West Country, France, Channel Islands etc. that are available from our home port of Gosport. [...]We embarked on our "Slow Boat to the Med" big adventure, having sailed out of Gosport in April 2017, with our final destination being the island of Ikaria, in the Eastern Aegean - where Andreas has his family roots, before going on to explore the hundreds of other stunning Greek island locations - we could be away a while!
