During summer the local Meltemi wind is strong and reliable, providing endless days of kitesurfing between the islands. In the evening it is time to explore the local life in the characteristic blue and white villages with amazing sunsets on the sea and good dinners in the local tavernas.
The catamaran is equipped with watermaker, auxiliar generator, AC, foil board, 2 SUPS and a 20 hp tender for rescue and moderate wakeboarding.
