General history/mythology

Since the city’s name is directly derived from the ancient goddess, Athena – Zeus’s capable daughter – Greece’s capital city is obviously an ancient site-lover’s heaven. From the ancient city streets surrounding the Acropolis with its crown edifice, the Parthenon, in the center; to the magnificent temple of Poseidon at the southern tip of Sounion; or, the more modern cultural experiences such as the Stavros Niarchos Cultural Center in Faliro, you’ll never have a dull moment.

Other Information

Port authorities
Our base manager will arrange everything with Port Authorities. The only thing we require from the skipper of the charter is to have with him his original sailing license and to send me two weeks prior his charter a copy of his sailing license.

Weather forecast
You should always try to get a weather forecast before heading out from land, especially if going more than several miles from shore, as it is difficult to tell at a glance what winds will appear, due to large land masses, mountains and other geographical features. You can use your radio, Navtex or contact the Port Police who receive weather faxes several times a day for the area.
