Jason, the Argonauts and the Golden fleece are part of the mythology (perhaps history) of Volos. A full scale replica of their ship, Argo, was built in 2004-2006 using ancient methods and tools only. Argo set off on a journey to Ithaca on 2008, using oars and sail, 3500 years after the first trip of Argo. Aboard were 74 modern Argonauts, ordinary people, not athletes. This video tells the tale.
