The Maltese Falcon

The world's largest privately owned sailing yacht paid a brief visit to Symi on Saturday night. Sorry about the fuzzy photo - my lowly Olympus is not much good for night shots. I took this from a gap in the buildings on the Kali Strata as she was dropping her anchors. She is 88 metres long and has an amazingly high tech version of a square rig, called a Dynarig.

the MF is the second largest privately owned. At 295 feet overall (90 meters), ATHENA is the largest private sailing yacht.

About this Blog

I sailed into Panormitis Bay, Symi, by chance one windy July day in 1993 and have been here ever since. The locals tell me that this is one of the miracles of St Michael of Panormitis. A BA graduate with majors in English, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation, the idea of living in what is to all intents and purposes an archaeological site appeals to me. Not as small as Kastellorizo, not as touristy as Rhodes, Symi is just the right size. I live on a small holding which my husband and I have reclaimed from a ruin of over-grazing and neglect and turned into a small oasis over the course of the past 22 years. I also work part-time for Symi Visitor Accommodation, helping independent travellers discover and enjoy Symi's simple pleasures for themselves.
