Greetings from Norway

Hi, stumbled across your forum today, and look forward to reaping from your accumulated experience! We've been cruising the Med and a stint in the Caribbean over the last 6 summers, planning to sail our 39 BC from Greece back to Norway in 2013 - lots of information gathering now!

Øyvind

Re: Greetings from Norway

Thanks! Yes, she is based at Kalamaki marina, near Athens, and we're eagerly awaiting the termination of the management deal with Kiriacoulis. We'll probably visit the Sporades this summer, and then a short run to the Cyclades in September. Next year we're planning to give her a general overhaul at a wharf on Aegina, before we embark on our homeward bound course somewhere in the spring of 2013.

Re: Greetings from Norway

So, after overhaul (during winter I suppose) You will have all 2012 season in the Med
Aegina is good place for overhauling the boat, but You can also consider the yard in the northernmost tip of Leros: AGMAR MARINE
I think they are the best choice in Greece for a sailboat overhaul (on quality vs. cost basis), but this is of course only my personal opinion
