Once you’ve settled into your cabin and perhaps had a glass of something restorative, your Captain will bring out a chart (map) of the area to work out the perfect route for you and the weather.
If you’re after a week of hopping between secluded bays, or if you are more interested in the hustle and bustle of the Greek outdoors town lifestyle, your Captain will help prepare the ultimate route for you.
Although there is no routine, a typical day may involve a leisurely breakfast on one of the islands, a move to a different anchorage and some water-sports, followed by lunch and then have fun sailing in the afternoon when the wind picks up. In the late afternoon, you will move toward your evening’s destination to moor for dinner.
Sailing is of course weather dependent. The Captain will carefully look at the forecast before and during the trip and plan the route accordingly. There may also be days where he considers it necessary to be port bound if the forecast is looking adverse. We will always err on the side of caution, however the chances of bad weather for more than a day a week in this area are very low.
Most trips start and finish in Corfu and will cruise the Northern Ionian Islands. For those wishing to cover more miles or explore a bit further, there is the option to head further south, and explore the Southern Ionian too on one of our one way trips. All prices assume a 7 night stay from Saturday to Saturday, starting and finishing in Corfu.
The price includes skipper, chef, fuel, marina fees, breakfast, lunch, soft drinks, water, tea/coffee/snacks and all watersports (water-skiing, wakeboarding, ringo, windsurfing, SUP, snorkelling). Extras are dinner if required on-board and alcoholic drinks. Other routes around are possible but delivery and one-way fees may apply.
Arrive and settle in. We’ll get you out of the marina as soon as possible to find a nice anchorage for a late afternoon swim. Your captain and chef will settle you into life on board – and there’s no such thing as a silly question!
Explore a bit more of Corfu before heading to mainland Greece for the evening. A beautiful piece of protected water behind Corfu lets you get used to your yacht before enjoying the first exhilarating sail to the mainland coast.
By now you are settled into the swing of life on board. Sail to Paxos and Anti-Paxos, marvelling at how your beautiful yacht glides almost silently between the islands. Stop over in Lakka, for the bluest water – or perhaps Gaios for a cosmopolitan evening in town.
The Paxos islands are a phenomenal playground for yachts. With caves, coves and beaches galore you can spend all day gently meandering around the islands exploring. Enjoy dinner at anchor, prepared by your wonderful chef.
Longos is our favourite sleepy town on the Paxos islands, often overlooked for being tiny – but that’s exactly why we love it. Offering some excellent restaurants, a beach bar best accessed by paddleboard and a few boutique shops, we’re quite often here a couple of times in the week…
Enjoy an upwind sail back to Corfu, surfing waves and enjoying your powerful yacht. Stop in Petriti, a working fishing village on the base of Corfu. Eat some of the freshest fish to be found in the islands.
For your last evening on board your crew can take you to the UNESCO jewel of Corfu, the Old Town – or to the famous Durrells ‘White House’ taverna. Enjoy a final evening before disembarking. We hope to see you on board again soon!
It is time to say goodbye to the brew and start dreaming about your next sailing adventure!
