Tradewinds   cruises   entirely   in   Greek   waters   this   year.   My   main   ports   for guest transfers were Porto Heli and Poros. Greek   waters   again   during   the   summer   of   this   year.   Guest   transfers were as last year, mainly using Porto Heli or Poros. Greek waters. Much the same as last year. Yet   another   season   cruising   Greek   waters.   Guest   joining   ports   were Porto Heli and Poros. Continued   to   cruise   Greek   waters   this   summer,   including   the   mainland coastal    areas    of    the    Argolic    and    Saronic    Gulfs,    and    the    Cyclades, Sporades and Dodecanese Islands. Continued   to   cruise   Greek   waters,   but   because   of   crew   difficulties   did not    venture    far    to    the    islands    as    I    planned.    Visited    the    northern Cyclades including Syros, Tinos, Mykonos and Kithnos. Cruised   Greek   waters   again,   including   the Argolic   and   Saronic   Gulfs,   and the Cyclades.

Remaining    in    Greek    (Aegean)    waters    with    a    similar itinerary   as   2018   planned,   although   probably   doing   crew transfers   in   the   Cyclades.   This   plan   could   be   affected   if the   UK   crashes   out   of   the   European   Union   without   a   deal, leaving   me   at   the   mercy   of   the   Schengen   immigration rules,    which    would    see    me    restricted    to    being    in    EU waters for just 90 out of any 180 day period.
2020 2020 - Crew Itineraries
Remaining     in     Greek     (Aegean)     waters     with     a     similar itinerary   as   2018   and   2019   planned.   This   plan   is   subject   to travel   restrictions   resuting   from   the   Coronavirus   outbreak, which   may   result   in   my   cruising   season   not   commencing until   early   August.   Unfortunately   this   could   be   my   final year   of   full   summer   cruising   in   the   Mediterranean,   as   the UK   has   now   left   the   European   Union.   After   the   transition period   comes   to   an   end   on   31st   December   2020   II’ll   be subjct   to   EU   Schengen   area   immigration   rules,   which   will (unless     there     is     any     agreement     otherwise)     see     me restricted   to   being   in   EU   waters   for   just   90   out   of   any   180 day period from the 2021 season onwards.
