Starting our trip, at 10.30, from the extraordinary natural harbor of Gaios, heading northwest, enjoying the east coastal line of Paxos, and passing outside the picturesque Loggos, we approach the small gulf of Lakka with the magnificent lighthouse. A short stop here to offer you a salad of seasonal fruits and to let you have some refreshing swimming. Later we hoist sails, heading southeast and keeping Paxos west coast at our yachts port side, we go to find out if Erimitis is really the most impressive of islands areas, we admire nature`s amazing sculpture in caves and the spectacular gigantic rock of Ortholithos. Feeling the harmony of interplay, between wind (in sails) and water (under the boat`s bow) into complete silence, we cross the passage between the two islands, approaching Antipaxos and during the rounding of the island, we discover nature`s small wonders, we explore the hidden bays with turquoise waters, and choose one of them to anchor for swimming and make time for our hostess to prepare your lunch, which includes, a full meal (vegetarian dishes upon request), accompanied with several side dishes and season salad as well as variety of white wines and soft drinks. Completing the round of Antipaxos, we head northwest and as you are enjoying a nice dessert, we cross the passage once more and while sailing we past Kaltsonisi (separated by a very narrow channel from Paxos) and right after Mogonisi (picturesque natural shelter) we finish our amazing cruise, which costs 1.400e, at late afternoon, in the magical harbor of Gaios. Rates are for up to 6 persons and there is extra charging for more (up to 10) passengers. We reserve the right to change or modify the route of the scheduled cruise, or to cancel it, due to inclement weather or for reasons it deems that they should not ensure safety for the passengers. What to Expect Onboard: She is designed by the famous American designer John G Alden in 1944 under the code name RENA CLASS 0744N. Plans were bought from Alden Company, through Peabody Museum Massachusetts U.S. in 1975, by the British captain mr. Nigel Halliwell. Construction (Iroko, for the hull and deck - mahogany, for the interior) tooke place in Cape Town and get done in 1984. Her "father" Nigel choose this type of vessel because of the ideal water line for the ocean length of waves and because of the flexibility of sail area (two masts and double fore stay). So he believes that she was the right vessel to do transatlantic passages from South Africa to United States, from there to United Kingdom and back to South Africa! His record of 60.000 nautical miles, in five years. She came to us in 2012 and she had a respectfull restoration, to stay a jewel of the sea which takes us back to time.
