THE ULTIMATE SAILING HOLIDAY

The planning stage of a cruise is often just as enjoyable as the voyage itself, letting one’s imagination loose on all kinds of possibilities. Yet translating dreams into reality means a lot of practical questions have to be answered.

Perfect sailing weather

The sailing areas most ideal for your first bareboat charter in Greece provide some of the most sheltered and friendly sailing conditions imaginable. The winds are generally ideal for fun yet relaxing sailing, with consistent winds for afternoon sailing leading to tranquil summer evenings. With a sunny Mediterranean climate, calm and warm crystal clear waters and friendly winds, many of the Greek Island sailing areas are renowned as the best destinations for sailing in the world.

Finding your way around

Navigation around the Greek islands is simple and stress free and due to the close proximity of the islands is predominantly by sight with almost no tide or currents and very few hazards. With the latest GPS chartplotters and our local knowledge of the waters you can explore the islands and follow the perfect routes and itineraries so you can visit all our favourite spots and find your own perfect paradise too.

A typical day

After a relaxing breakfast onboard or in a harbour side cafe spend the morning meandering around the emerald waters to a secluded bay or pretty Greek village for a lunch time stop. Swim, paddle board, snorkel or relax in the sunshine with a good book. Typically wind builds by early afternoon and drops again at sunset so you can enjoy a great sail to your evening destination with calm evenings and still, peaceful waters. Anchor off in a sheltered bay, have a relaxing night in a pretty quayside port or explore a cosmopolitan town for sundowners and cafe culture.
