Windy Forecast for Greek Isles

Please tell me the impact of windy conditions on ferry travel to the Cyclades. I searched the 10 day weather outlook on for next week & it calls for wind.

Ferries may have been improved since I last traveled there, but we once sat in Piraeus from 8 am until 6:30 pm waiting for the wind to die down enough to leave.

On the other hand, while we were sitting there we met some lovely people from Berlin who became our life-long friends. So I guess it's an ill wind that blows no one good!

We were on Mykonos a few years ago, and it was so windy that cruise ships could not come into the harbor. Our departure by ferry was delayed. We woke up to the wind howling around our hotel room and went to sleep with it at night; sounded like the worst kind of winter storm we might have here in Pgh. Because nobody could get to the island, it was free of daytrippers and therefore not very crowded, and the jewelers supposedly had sales on their goods!

I had heard about the winds but was not prepared for the velocity of these. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our stay on Mykonos!
