Last Chance to Join the CBYA 2021 Charter Cruise to the Greek Cyclades Islands!



Greece has confirmed that they will start to reopen to their borders to vaccinated visitors from next week! Click HERE for details. This is in advance of their full opening to tourism on 14th May 2021. We are sure that we will all be able to travel to Athens to join the CBYA charter cruise in September, without having to quarantine or take tests, as long as we have all been vaccinated and have secured our vaccination passports.

We now have five (5) confirmed skippers for this cruise, and almost all of the crew slots have been taken. Most of the confirmed participants have already booked their flights, as well as their accommodation in Athens.

Five (5) yachts have been chartered, each with 4 or 5 cabins, and we intend to sail out of Lavrion Marina to the Cyclades Islands. We still have limited places available if you’re interested.

I am scheduling a Zoom meeting for all confirmed and interested participants for 1500 hours CET on Wednesday 12th May 2021. Please let me  know as soon as possible if you are interested in joining the meeting by clicking HERE.
