8 Days in Greece
Captain Yevgen Yaroshenko joined Annaliesse this year following a 20-year career at sea. He graduated in 1984 from Odessa High Engineering Marine Academy and has held an Unlimited Masters License since 1994. His five years of experience as captain onboard P/V Golden Princess and his extensive experience with Eurasia International Ltd. have led him to the helm of Annaliesse. Captain Yaroshenko is fluent in English, Russian, and his native Ukrainian. Following is one of the itineraries he plans to follow this summer:

Under the shadow of the Acropolis, your charter on Annaliesse will embark in Athens. Once you’ve unpacked your bags, the yacht will set out for a tour of the Cyclades island chain. One of the first islands you’ll visit is Kithnos, a typical example of Greek island life that is unaffected by the trappings of modern tourism. Rugged rocky coastlines offer many sheltered bays for a quiet night at anchor.

DAY 2: KITHNOS – SYROS (3 hrs 30 mins)
After a robust breakfast, the yacht will head on a short cruise toward the island of Syros, where the port of Ermoupoli is said to be the “Queen of the Cyclades.’’ Once you have sampled the delights of the town, there are numerous bays in which the yacht can anchor for water sports.

DAY 3: SYROS – TINOS (2 hrs)
Next on our tour of the Cyclades is the mountainous and wooded island of Tinos. The spectacular Church of Our Lady draws pilgrims from throughout the Greek islands. After a stroll and perhaps a luncheon on shore, water-sports enthusiasts can enjoy the afternoon playing with some of the yacht’s toys.

DAY 4: TINOS – MYKONOS (1 hr 30 mins)
Next comes one of the most popular destinations in Greece: Mykonos. A cosmopolitan air combined with picturesque, whitewashed, limestone houses and old-world windmills won’t disappoint any visitor. Shopping is superb and the nightlife is sure to stimulate the senses as we mark the halfway point on our itinerary.

DAY 5: MYKONOS – NAXOS (2 hrs 30 mins)
After the fun of Mykonos, you may be ready to once again pursue more restful scenery, so the plan is to set out for Naxos, the largest and most fertile island in this chain. Steep peaks with rich vegetation growing on terraced slopes are a grocer’s delight with olives, citrus, and figs to name just a few.

DAY 6: NAXOS – SIFNOS (4 hrs)
With underground treasure pouring from her ancient gold and silver mines, Sifnos was once a mecca of wealth in olden days. Admire the scenery and imagine the lifestyle of simpler times from the remains of the medieval village of Kastro.

The next stop on our Cycladic tour is Spetses, where impressive homes and civic structures demonstrate this island’s longtime prosperity. Since there are no cars on the island, you can hire a horse-drawn carriage to show you around this scenic location.

DAY 8: SPETSES – ATHENS (5 hrs 30 mins)
Alas, as the sun rises on the last day of the charter, Annaliesse will cruise back to the disembarkation port in Athens.
