Re: Greece or Hawaii? Sailing charter/ Scuba trip

We have been to Hawaii 10 times. No sailboat chartering there really. We have been out on Sailboats there, diving and snorkleing and it is fantastic. Saling there requires huge knowledge and is not for the beginner as the trades blow very strong in the afternoon and if you are in the slots between the islands can be 35-40 knts easily.

I heard Greece is very nice. Contact Paulo ( PCP) he may be able to give you a line on stuff there as he lives in Portugal.

Hawaii is beautiful, easy to navigate, no passports, spectaular views and restaurants, fishing and snorkeling and diving. Horrible flight for less than 2 week stay if you are from the rights coast as we are IMHO

We love Hawaii and go back every 5 years a swe got married on th Makennna beach in Maui in front of the volcano Haleakala...thus the name of our boat.
