The Champagne Backpacker: Michael's Round the World Trip 2005-2007-- The Adventure of a Lifetime travel blog

Sunday, July 31. Kythnos. We motor sailed about three hours to Kythnos, where we anchored in a shallow bay. We continued on to Merihas, Kythnos, through very large swells. In Merihas, all the dock spaces were full. But this didn't stop Jorgo. In Greece, they do what's called a Mediterranean mooring where the boat is backed up against the dock rather than pulled in head first. This is due in part because the docks here typically do not have slips to pull along side. We backed our boat amongst three other boats and secured lines to each of them. In order to get to the dock and land, we had to jump and cross over two other boats. Jorgo explained that this was the customary practice in Greece.
