Boats on the shore in Mykonos greek islands, an amazing playground for boaters

Second only to the Caribbean the Greek islands are the most popular destinations for yacht owners. The warm safe waters, famous Greek hospitality and of course night life, have been attracting boaters to this region for years. We recently found amazing footage filmed by Kevork V, a professional photographer and travel guru, who cruised the island aboard a a 78 foot Ferretti form Athens to Cyprus.

Enjoy….

Sure some may discourage you from going, after viewing the recent economic wows in mainland Greece, but the way we see it you are missing out. With hundreds of islands to explore you will not regret going there this summer.

Your destination is largely dependent on Meltemi the local name for the summer winds. Expect some fascinating thunderstorms and sudden weather changes. Here is a video from June 2011 …

Kevork describes what he saw that day ….

15 June 2011 started with a dull grey morning gradually turning into a hot and humid day, but nothing, including the weather forecast could prepare anyone for what was in store. Early evening the sky turned black and the winds started blowing leaves all over the place. Yachts anchored in the bay of Garitsa, normally safe during the summer months, were scrambling to secure anchors. But the storm lasted a mere 15 minutes to be followed by one of natures most impressive light shows I have ever witnessed.
