We usually visit Paros in July for windsurfing, but thanks to an invitation from our friend Nikos & his wife Astrid (owners of the Philoxenia hotel), we decided to spend there this Easter.

Great choice by all means, because the island at that time, offers a much more relaxed atmosphere (as long as you know how to avoid the crowd).

Here are a few images I would like to share.

And since sailing in Paros is a must even when not windsurfing windy, I tried for a second time to wing-surf on my 140 liters Gong Lance, under the instructions of Alekos – the wingman of the group.

We sailed in Santa Maria, where John & Julie were already wing training.Me & John winging

July is coming soon, and so does a new sailing season for us, so my friend Kostas & myself try not to spare workout time – Alekos & Mari are sailing daily…
