Thanks for the reply. I did do some checking on the temps and it would appear that March is not a good time to go although the charter companies start offering boats after Feb - yes - the temps are too cold.
My wife and I still have a chance to get away in March so we may just do a car sightseeing tour of Northern California and save the Greece charter for the summer when it's much warmer.

March might be cold (fifties F).
If you can delay it to April (sixties F) or May (seventies F) would be more pleasant. In May you might even swim in the sea.
I am not sure if there is much nightlife in March in the Cyclades, I know that May is already very lively.
God about winter sailing in Greece is that there is no meltemi (strong summer wind), but you may get other strong winds or bad weather.
P.S. If you need a 43 feet boat P.M. me - we might get something.

Greece - Saronic Gulf or Northern & Middle Cyclades
My wife and I are considering chartering in March in Greece.
only have 7 days or so...
any recommendations ? Saronic Gulf or the Northern & Middle Cyclades
we do like to go out at night so ports with nightlifes are preferential and some sightseeing would be nice too.
