I am going to be chartering a boat for the first time in Greece
. I have ICC
and VHF license
(RYA SRC). This will not be a discussion on what licenses I need to hold. I also own Heikell's Greek Waters Pilot.
I want to talk about more practicalities: i.e. for example on VHF
, is it true that the Coast Guard doesnt monitor
ch 16? (but only ch12?)
Is it common in Greece
to pre-arrival in ports/marinas to check in?
We will be sailing in the Cyclades
. No itinerary yet, any strong recommendations of bays/beaches to see? (i.e. I want to enter the Santorini crater from the North as apparently the entrance is beautiful.
Any other experiences chartering in Greek Islands
that is worthwhile sharing?
