  • Description

    A group of Dutch boy scouts from Hilversum, left the Greek town of Volos, Aug 3, at the start of a voyage which will take them along the route of ancient Argonauts, who searched for the "Golden Fleece" more than 30 centuries ago. Their aim is to bring the Greek country and culture into the "limelight", by their "good will" project.

    Led by Scoutmaster Dr. P.L.Muller and Rover Scout Leader L. Roelofsen, the young "Argonauts" boarded their hired caique - the fishing-boats used in the Aegean Sea, watched by the Mayor of Volos and the Dutch Consul.

    Their first stop will be Mount Athos, where they will visit the monasteries in the area, then on to Lemnos, Samothrace, the Isle of Thaos and the port of Kavalla in Thrace. At the end of the trip the scouts will have covered more than 400 sea miles.
