Sailing vacation these days with the coronavirus to Greece
The virus that landed on us in early March 2020 crushed all our sailing plans. “Rachel” our Jeanneau 54 is in Portugal, and the plan to enter the Straits of Gibraltar into the Mediterranean sea is on hold.
An unexpected opportunity came our way when Greece was declared a green country and flights resumed.
Dudi from Viamaris sailing club built a plan to sail in the Cyclades islands so, we decided to join.
rapidly get ourselves for Corona tests 24 before the flight, filling out forms from the Greek government, filling out a medical condition for Israel
Finally, we are at Ben Gurion Airport with masks at any given moment.
Of course in Athens, we needed to have another test followed by a stay at the hotel for 24 hours, a kind of isolation.
The next day a 40-minute flight and we are in a magical place – the island of Paros.
“Eva” a Jeanneau 51 welcomed us, organised and luxuriously equipped.
Nothing like the open seas to keep us safe!
