SKopelos

Boats, Kaiques and sailing flotillas

By Sofia, Sep 28 2019 09:46AM

The season draws to a close and some boat owners, Greek and international, are preparing their boats for dry dock over the winter.


Nowadays, some even choose to dry dock on Skopelos port. This shouldn't be seen as an unusual choice. After all, in years gone by, what is now a car parking place and a beach was a boat building yard, then a main industry of Skopelos island, until steam ships put the industry out of business and to an end.


Meanwhile, the flotilla of leisure sail boats, a familiar sight at the far end of the Skopelos marina, previously the old port, continue to sail strong. These sunny, breezy beautiful days are perfect for their choice of leisure this time of the year!
