Attica




"Attica (Greek: Αττική, Ancient Greek Attikḗ or Attikī́, Ancient Greek: [atːikɛ̌ː] or Modern: [atiˈci]), or the Attic peninsula, is a historical region that encompasses the city of Athens, the capital of Greece and its countryside. It is a peninsula projecting into the Aegean Sea, bordering on Boeotia to the north and Megaris to the west. The southern tip of the peninsula, known as Laurion, was an important mining region.

The history of Attica is tightly linked with that of Athens, and specifically the Golden Age of Athens during the classical period. Ancient Attica (Athens city-state) was divided into demoi or municipalities from the reform of Cleisthenes in 508/7 BC, grouped into three zones: urban (astu) in the region of Athens main city and Piraeus (port of Athens), coastal (paralia) along the coastline and inland (mesogeia) in the interior.

The modern administrative region of Attica is more extensive than the historical region and includes Megaris as part of the regional unit West Attica, and the Saronic Islands and Cythera, as well as the municipality of Troizinia on the Peloponnesian mainland, as the regional unit Islands."

Horrible, horrible. I saw bad reviews before I booked and figured only people who have bad experiences leave reviews. The boats are old and poorly maintained. Let me tell you: the sail TORE IN HALF during our trip. I asked to speak to the Athens manager and he hung up on me when I asked him to help us out. Truly awful. Avoid at all costs.

Its a trap. We rented two boats in Mykonos. Neither of them was operational. In one damaged engine cooling. In the second, the sail is stuck. If it weren't for an experienced skipper, we would have gone to sea. There, the engine would seize, and the sail, pulled on the capstan, would surely break off. The company would have asked for money for the "damaged" yachts. After a report we waited 3 days for reactions from the company. We finally flew to Athens ourselfs. No more.

Zea Marina

A sheltered harbour with many super yachts in the entrance. Pontoons behind security gates. Several great bars overlooking the Marina.

Ydra

Issues with crossed anchors in the marina but a spectacular setting well worth a visit. Ponies on the quayside. Winding through white washed streets.

Aegina

Moored up on a busy quay with a Med mooring squeezed in between two yachts. Caught a ferry to Poros to keep our spot along the quay. Lovely bars and restaurants.

We arrived here after travelling through the corinthian canal and we struggled to find a mooring new the town. We walked into town and it is very pretty fishing village that livens up at night.

We rented a sailing boat with Kiriacoulis in the south of France. The boat was in a poor shape, and many parts had to be replaced (upon our demand) at check in. We had an issue at see on day 4 (Genoa topped broke due to over usage!) and maintenance / support of the crew was poor (actually inexistant). Following our trip, no one dares or cares providing an answer to our complaints... avoid this company by any means! In 15 years of charting with other companies I’ve never had such a bad experience

Charter was an older boat and rigging was salt encrusted (but we were in the Med, so its to be expected). Hand over despite language problems was thorougher with focus on the important stuff. Loads of spares on board and hand back to fleet manager was smooth and hassle free. Having read some bad reviews I was nervous: but was very happy with my experience with them - hence this review.
