The sea winds of Greece are legendary.
The strong, dry north Etesian winds, also known as the meltemia, blow on the Aegean Sea from May to September.
Then there are the fierce main winds, which blew mighty waves towards Odysseus in Homer's Odyssey. "Then were the knees of Odysseus loosened and his heart melted, and deeply moved he spoke to his own mighty spirit: 'Ah me, wretched that I am! What is to befall me at the last?'"
Odysseus may have seen the winds as a curse. But on the island of Tilos, they're a blessing.
