The Marathon Lake. The dam has a maximum height of 54m, a maximum width of 28m at the base and 4.5m at the crest. Constructed from concrete but clad in white Pentelikon marble - the same as used in the construction of the Parthenon and other buildings in the Acropolis.
We have been sailing together for 15 years and have owned Stiletto for 13 of them. We have exhausted the Solent and the South Coast and all the other usual passages: West Country, France, Channel Islands etc. that are available from our home port of Gosport. [...]We are now embarking 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. This will become the base for our adventures in Greek waters in the coming years. With hundreds of stunning island locations to cruise we could be away a while!
