Sailing in Lemnos with Mark Warner, June/July 2015 and Sept 2020

We so much enjoyed our holiday with Mark Warner at Lemnos in June 2014, that we booked to go back again in 2015 for two weeks in June/July 2015. After a gap of several years we visited again for a week starting 3rd Sept 2020.  Because of Covid we had worried a lot as to whether or not the holiday would go ahead. Several other Greek Islands had restrictions applied in the weeks prior which meant that people would have had to isolate for two weeks when returning to the UK. We did get away, with the Island of Lemnos only having had 3 cases of Covid in the past 9 months.  About half of all the passengers (one from each party) were tested on arrival and all were clear. The airline Enter Air was excellent with a new Boeing 737-800 plane.



We were very pleased to be welcomed on arrival by George, the Manager from Mark Warner, as he has made this resort one of our favourites.  We were not disappointed. The weather was blue skies all week with nice breeze for sailing and somewhat stronger winds for the final big-race events day.

Memorable evening meal times. One evening, a Praying Mantis landed on her hair and got entangled. Amazing to see such a specimen with its wings opened.  We carefully caught it and put it gently in the foliage nearer the road.

Ready for evening meal. Free wine!
