Hosted by Gary Jobson, this video takes us back to cruising in Europe during the late 1980s. From Sailing Quarterly Video Magazine. (D1Z)
The first cruise takes you to Norway where the midnight sun and Norwegian fjords provide a striking backdrop for a charter vacation.
Next your stop is Romania with legendary skipper, Tristan Jones exploring the Black Sea and the Danube River Delta. You arrive
shortly after the 1989 revolution that deposed Romania's communist dictator, Nicolae Ceaușescu, foreshadowing the fall of the Soviet Union and the end of the Cold War.
Next up is Ireland with another legendary skipper, Don Street. Don sails to the Fastnet Rock at the tip of the Celtic Sea and turning mark for the famound race. We then join Don on a cruise the beautiful southwest coast of the Emerald Isle with local stops and pub crawls.
For our next cruise, we join a Cruising World Magazine flotilla charter through the Greek Islands and the beautiful waters of the Aegean Sea.
There was a time when the Baltic States were a model of multiculturalism with Orthodox Christians and Muslims living side-by-side. Communist but with a high degree of independence, Yugoslavia enjoyed peace and stability. Bordering the beautiful Adriatic Sea, Sunsail established a charter destination offering gentle cruising and island hopping in the calm, clear waters off Croatia's Dalmatian Coast.
Our final European cruise takes us back to the Aegean along Turkey's western coast. A crewed charter explores this ancient coastline and its numerous Greek and Roman ruins.
