May, 480 BC
The defeated Persian fleet retreats in disarray after the Naval Battle of Salamis. Athenian triremes pursue the enemy to the west coasts of Attica where the suburb of Glyfada is located now. The Athenian victory marks the beginning of the end of the Persian invasion in Greece. The sacrifices made by the victorious Greeks to their Olympian gods lasted two days. Statues were dedicated at the alters of Poseidon, thrown into the sea, that is. The coast from Salamis, to Glyfada, up to Sounion was said to thrive in lost statues....
2500 years later, you as daring explorers are asked to recover the ancient statues. Archeological evidence will aid you, guiding your way by markings and coordinates.
Board your ribs (inflatable boats), sailingboats or bigger cruisers, split in small teams of 4-7 persons each. Your mission is to find the ancient artifacts lost after thousands of years using the clues that you will discover on your journey. Your ribs or sailboats will depart from the Kalamaki marina or your hotel's jetty (if available).
The captain and the crew of the boats will ask you to complete some tasks in order to give you the right to search for the statues:
- your first task, an ancient direction maze on a “map”, will evaluate your ability to find your route to the next step of your treasure hunt.
- the second task is a sailing task (applied to sailing boats). It is a time task to prove the readiness of your team. A small detail... You are sailing the yacht!!!!!
Your destination is either xxxx or the xxxx, however we will not disclose the exact location of point X. That is up to you to find out. Clues to the whereabouts of the treasure are given after the tasks along your route. These points will be described to you as coordinates on a nautical map plus a picture taken from the exact location of the point.
Having found these clues, you will have to reach the area where the treasure is hidden and, by interpreting these clues, find its exact location within a limited amount of time…
