Ahoy mateys.... and anyone else who knows Greece, @Mrs Ex-Ascot & @Ex-Ascot maybe....?

I am leading another flotilla of sailing catamarans in the Saronic Gulf in May. So far I have 7 boats filled.

Nary a comment from the Mediterranean, let alone the Aegean or Ionian Seas. Perhaps you should post a hint to this question in TRABB?

Failing that I will hail my skipper friend Willy, currently sailing around Australia, who knows these ancient places places well.

I might have some experience in the area as a matter of fact my entire sailing experience is in the area you mention. When I switch on my mobile, I would check if I still have the number of a local skipper.

So what do you need to know? For instance Hydra harbour is very hard to find a mooring place and you moor two or three vessels away from the deck.
