Photo by Kevork Voskeritchian on a Ferretti 68 cruising the Aegean Sea “The journey started as a flight from the Greek island of Corfu, where I live now, to Cyprus, which is my home country,” reader Kevork Voskeritchian wrote. “Waiting in the Corfu airport I was catching up with friends, some of which are skippers. As luck would have it, one of them was returning back to Cyprus for the winter and the owners cancelled at the last minute, so he was in need of a crew. The boat, a Ferretti 68, was in Athens, where I had to change planes. Being October, sailing from Athens to Cyprus is a cat-and-mouse game with the weather as the southerly storms begin and can be rather fearsome, but it’s also the time of the year when sunsets are particularly impressive. This shot was taken when we had just outrun a storm on our tail and had hit some relatively calm waters as we were approaching the island of Kos.”
