I read this lying naked on a sun lounger on the top deck of a boat off the Croatian island of Kocuba. Breakfast now digested, I think I feel a swim coming on...

I will endeavour to produce a report of the British Naturism cruise when I get home. In the meantime I intend to...

Have fun,


Ian.

Ok, Ian. We will be waiting for it.
How’s the weather? Many people there?

Fair winds and following seas.

While Ian was having fun on the BN Croatian cruise, I was having equal fun on a naked yacht on the Southern Ionian.
Report, pictures and video to follow when I have cleared the backlog of other things.

The 2018 flotilla is already in planning - see flyer attached. It would be great to have a FRN contingent on one or more boats.
I intend to be there again but cannot be sure at the moment because of M's health problems.

The flyer is kinda blurry, but I get the gist.

How much food budget would you figure. Is it a port and restaurant every night? Eating on the boat? We're vegetarian, do some eggs and some sea food. What is available besides fish? Conch, oysters, clams? Are there any markets to by fruits and veggies? Are the galleys set up to cook in? Refridgertors, and how big are they? Are meals shared?

Do they anchor off of the beaches some nights? Is it a set agenda. DF has little sailing, even boating experience...desert rat. So, everybody travels from somewhere around London together, on specific dates? Can we meet up in Greece? Greece is on top of my bucket list. I might end up hanging out there a couple of months.

Do we have to belong to BN, we're TNS members, me from 1980 something.

I have several major retirement adjustments to make in this next year. As compelling trip report might inspire DF...hint....

Firstly, you do not need to be a BN member in order to join this event as, although it is organised from within BN it is not an official members' holiday.

The standard package includes flights from London (usually Gatwick) but I'm sure a discounted price could be arranged for you to join the transfer bus at Preveza Airport or to make your own way to whichever base port on Lafkada Island the flotilla starts from (usually Nidri or Sivota).

We usually reckon on between 200 and 300 euros per week for meals and other refreshments, eating at the local tavernas when in port and lunching on board (naked, of course) in a quiet bay.
Supplies are bought at the small supermarkets in the ports. These are of variable quality but usually have a good selection of local vegetables. Although the taverna menus tend to be carnivorous there are usually enough vegetarian and seafood options.

There itinerary is dependent on the weather forecast and is announced from daily by the lead crew who are responsible for the entire flotilla and are always at hand to assist with mooring up, having ensured that adequate moorings will be available. However there are usually one or two "free sailing" days when we have moored overnight in a sheltered bay and eaten on board, allowing a complete 24 hours naked time.

I apologise for the poor print on the flyer but I had to reduce it in size to attach it complete with pictures. I have re-attached the text as a .txt file.
You may also find this link to the flotilla company's helpful hints pages useful www.sailingholidays.com/sailing-holidays-helpful-hints. This page also gives you access to the main Sailing Holidays web site by clicking on their logo in the top left corner.

Also, as I stated earlier, I am not sure whether I will be going so unless there is another FRN person going who is able to skipper a yacht it might be a little difficult ofr you to fit in.

I don't know how you feel or believe about such things, but when you mentioned health issues, I put M and you in our little prayer book as being healthy and happy. It gets a going over each day and with a group that I facilitate every Wednesday night. Jus' sayin'

Well, we have field reports from the Adriatic and Ionian seas. Anyone in the Aegean.
There should be some gorgeous photos posted here soon.

I was browsing old posts and clicked on one from Ian (milfmog) and noticed he last updated us from his Croatia trip but not since.

Where he asked for a post from Jbee . . . .
I'm going through old papers and thinning things out. I came across a printout of a post that was The Secret Naturist Society from March 23rd, 2001! I think that it was the old Corbie site. I was still on WebTV, the early internet. 16 1/2 years and going strong.

I suspect that if the post was worth keeping for that length of time, it is worth sharing...

Have fun,
Ian.

I realize that getting the grammar and punctuation correct is a long process, buuut . . ?
A little update you three! Eh! :D
The one from Jbee sounds interesting though.

I'm very interested in all things of the BN cruise.

That story had to do with a pal of mine, a future wife, who is now an ex, and her best pal. We used to call the two women Nitro and Glycerine. When they got together, pow! There was a birthday, several Long Island Iced teas at the Solarium, etc., then, "Let's walk the neighborhood naked in stealth." My ol' suburban neighborhood, out onto Speedway Blvd. Dawn doing cartwheels down the middle of that road. She didn't want to be stealth. She wanted to be seen. Checking to see if the keys were in a parked police car (lived in the neighborhood), in case we might steal it, the ultimate naked crazy exploit to brag about. Fortunately, didn't happen. Nekkid stuff in the early 80's.

People used to come up to me who hadn't seen me in a while and say things like, "I can't believe that you are still alive and well!" People change.
