Bahamas yacht charter

Bahamas yacht charter to sail the Caribbean Sea

When you book a Bahamas yacht charter, you gain access to over 500 miles of tropical waterways. The Bahamas is an archipelago with over 700 islands, so unless you have a lot of money, you won’t be able to tour them all in one charter holiday. You may pick between crewed yacht charters and bareboat charters, but whichever you choose, you can go sailing Bahamas wherever you want. The facilities provided by a Bahamas yacht charter are what distinguishes crewed yacht rentals from bareboat charters: If you choose the cheaper bareboat option, you will have to supply your own food …

Our Bavaria 350 for sale in Greece – SOLD

In February, we bought our beautiful Bavaria 350 sailboat in the South of France. After the lockdown we spent in France, we worked on it a bit, and then we set sail.

visit to piraeus

How the visit to Piraeus changed our lives

In the first days of our family trip to Athens, we visited the Acropolis and Anafiotika, followed by Monastiraki and the Roman vestiges in Plaka. But this was Greece, and I just couldn’t bear being there without seeing the sea. So I convinced everyone to go on a visit to Piraeus! Once separate cities, Piraeus is now part of Athens. The capital city of Greece is growing more horizontally than vertically, covering 39 sqkm in 2016. (And Greater Athens covers 583 sqkm!) I was really excited about finally getting to one of Europe’s most important harbors throughout history and I had no idea it was going to …
