“Intrepid sailors and fishermen navigating these heavily trafficked waters have recounted tall tales and formulated popular wisdom that persists to the present day. According to ancient inscriptions, sailors always docked their ships at Delos when the rugged peaks of the island of Tinos were covered in clouds, for this atmospheric condition nearly always presaged a storm. Today’s boatmen still gaze toward Tinos to gauge the weather before launching their craft.”
