We arrived in Crete today, bringing our Greek sampling leg to an end. We were very lucky to be able to sail in Greek waters, this place is truly beautiful. Not only did we get to see the natural beauty of Greece, but our hosts introduced us to the rich culture and extensive history of Greece. Our hosts, The Captain (AKA Mr Panayotis Tsakos ) and his family have been good friends with Dr. Venter for years. Being in the shipping business for decades, it isn’t surprising that they know the best places in Greek waters! We learned a lot about their shipping business, Tsakos Group , as well as the Maria Tsakos Foundation . The foundation is very interesting so please click on the link and read about it. The Sorcerer II crew was given a once in a lifetime experience from the Tsakos family, one we will never forget and are very thankful for!
