I don't think there are any AIs there yet :roll:
But what a dream it would be to sail around those beautiful islands :D
Just use Google Earth and take a look at it. Paros looks pretty good :wink:
Has anyone had any sailing adventures there?
What do you think about an AI adventure there??
I think it would be even better with the soon-to-be-released tandem 8)
I might have to add this to my list of dream locations :wink: :lol:

You're so right SkyMax. What a great long weekend to get out in the great outdoors all over Oz. I went into a table-tennis tournament in Melbourne only to get hammered by the youngsters. On my way to and fro the stadium I kept wishing I was out in the Gippsland Lakes rather than preparing to take another battering on the tables. Nice pic mate and your photo of you with the plane makes me want to get back into the sky with either a light aircraft or a gyro which I still have but are not using....Pirate :wink:

I have been there before (not AI ). Do your homework to come in the right season, and check the winds. They come up every afternoon and can be really, really strong. It can change from absolutly flat to whitecaps in half an hour.
Beautyfull area though! Absolutely worth a trip.

OK- this discussion really needs some visual aids.

This is one of the clips that really got me interested in the sport of kayak sailing and eventually in Hobies.

Check out WildWind holidays in Vassiliki (Thats on a small island called Lefkas/Levkada).....Awesome afternoon winds due to location and thermal effect, stunning views over the bay and a pretty laid back place altogether.....Thoroughly reccommended (I've been out three times already this year !!)
