The Aegean Sea, 'Aigaio Pelagos' in greek, and known as 'Archipelagos' - the chief sea - in ancient greek, covers about 214,000 square kilometres in area.

During the summer period local area winds, known as 'Meltemia' blow from the North. Meltemia start every day when the sun goes up accelerating wind speed about to 6 Beaufort during the daytime and calm down with the sunset.

This wind behaviour gives the sailor a unique opportunity to enjoy sailing between the countless small and even smaller islands in the Aegean Sea.

In the evening, when the winds calm down, anchoring in a isolated and quite bay, is the best reward after a day of sailing excitment.
