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!
