Photographer's Note the name of this modern sailing boat that was moored in the port of Sifnos island,Kamares.
During my waiting in the port i was lucky because of the sailing boat was moored and to shot it,to show it to you.


The toponym Kamares or Kamara comes from the past and derives from the many caves that existed on the rocky south coast of the bay. In the old days this caves were useful for storing the small fishing boats protecting them from bad weather and in there were made the essential repairs. Today these caves are not visible, because their places have occupied houses and shops.

Kamares are the port of Sifnos and perhaps the nerve centre of the island, especially during the arrival of ferry boats. Being the entry of the island, the village of Kamares will be the first impression of Sifnos. And believe me, these impressions will be the best. If you arrive at night raise your eyes at north-east. You will see high up a litted up monastery. This is the monastery of Saint Simeon. This spectacle perhaps will give you an idea about the morphology of Kamares. In the daylight you will be astonished. The port is found in the middle of the big embrace from three mountains. The mountain of Saint Simeon and Prophet Elias from the North and the mountain ‘Korakes’ from the South. That is why Kamares is very special. The combination of the wild mountainous landscape and the calmness scenery of the sea, where at East they are linked in colors and shape that only nature can combine.
