News from the Annapolis boat show October 2015




Thanks to everyone who came to see us at Annapolis Sailboat show. The weather was glorious which in turn got everyone outdoors to see the latest yachts and boat gadgets at the show. Our very own Steven Parry was captured on camera at the show by the ASA (American Sailing Association). You can view the short video here

Sailing in Greece end of the season

It's been a while since we posted on our News page and we're sorry about that! September was a very windy month and this meant typing at the same time as sailing was not possible for our crew! Our 29th August departure left Athens with two cabin charter yachts and midway through the first week, we were lucky enough to have our first overnight anchorage of the year at Kleftico on the southwest tip of Milos. Kleftico is a spectacular stop and the dinghy tours through the caves to the old pirate haunts is an unforgettable experience for everyone. The 12th September departure, will go down in history as the trip with lots of yachts, strong wind, much fun but definitely a few problems thrown in - par for the course when nine yachts are involved, this is adventure sailing after all! Clients joined us from Australia, Canada, United States and the UK aboard the three cabin charter yachts and we saw birthday celebrations, yacht breakdowns and fouled anchors on many occasions! The stories from this departure will go on for many years we are sure! Finally the last departure of the year was a just a quick week but ended the season on an amazing high. When friends and family travel together it always generates a unique type of vacation for everyone - this trip was no exception and we can honestly say that we have never heard so much laughter coming from two yachts in the history of Poseidon! We really hope that we get to sail with the 'Sanders' group again!

Ok we're sorry for being so quiet but we're back!

Hi everyone..firstly we must apologise for being quiet for so long. It's not that we stopped working hard in Greece and other destinations but sailing got the better of us and we didn't keep up to date with our blog! We hope that you have still been following our twitter feed on the left and we plan to add many more blog posts this summer from our trips and anything else that we feel we can write about! For now, why not check out the latest specials we on our website.

BVI Adventure - brand new for 2013

For the past 20 or so years Poseidon Charters has been sailing each summer in Greece. We love Greece, the people, the sailing and the gastronomy. 8 years ago we started to explore Croatia and now can't get enough of the wonderful Adriatic coastline and all that it has to offer. In recent years we've been receiving more and more requests for the British Virgin Island and this year we have bit the bullet and decided to offer our great concept of a combined cabin charter and flotilla in the British Virgin Islands. We have 4 confirmed departure dates starting on 14 December 2013. Until 31 January 2013 we've got a special offer of $1499 per person for a double cabin ($1699 thereafter). You'll get breakfast and lunch included in the price and be able to sail or sit back and relax. For the more adventurous you can join us on flotilla - we've got some great yachts in the fleet so don't leave it too late to reserve your yacht. THIS TRIP HAS PASSED.

The last sail of 2012

For the first time this year, the rain joined us as we left Athens for the final flotilla of the year. Naias and Kalliopi joined Margarita for this all-Canadian departure and in true Greek weather style, the rain only stayed with us for one day until the beautiful September sun came back. In Hydra, Tony from Kalliopi and Brian from Margarita thrilled us all with their excellent musical talents playing the restaurant’s guitar. Tony we thoroughly enjoyed the Beatles medley, thank you for providing such ‘on the spot’ entertainment. Leaving Hydra, the meltemi winds were kind to us and allowed us to have an overnight anchorage on the south western tip of Milos and a fantastic BBQ of lamb, chicken and pork under the stars. Ios and Paros followed where we said goodbye to the crew of Kalliopi at wonderful Apollon restaurant. Heading back to Athens, Friday turned out to be the best sailing day of the flotilla and Naias and Margarita enjoyed hour after hour of wonderful winds taking us into Alimos marina for a spectacular sunset arrival to end the 2012 Mediterranean season.
